I find simplicity so hard



This is yet another simple card as I try really hard to keep my cards simple and elegant.

I originally did this in brown but I was really unhappy with it, it was so blaaaaah! It just didn't have any lfe, so I asked a friend her opinion and she said it needed some bling and maybe needed to be done in a different color.

So I took her advice and pierced a lot of the card including some of the image and I added some rhinestones. It's hard to see in the picture, but I embossed the image in Iridescent Ice embossing powder, so it is quite sparkly!

The swirl is Rhonna Farrer swirls one and the sentiment is me using my Paper Tray set yet again! :) It can be found here www.papertrey.com

I think it turned out very well! I know what you mean about simple being difficult, I find that, too.

Alli, your card is gorgeous! I love all the details and I am terribly envious you already have those stamps. April first I will order all three sets. I just have to hold out until April first.

Beautiful Alli!! I though the piercing on the bottom was lace! Too cool!
