It was my turn to design a quick and easy card for my neighbour and I to make at our weekly crop night.
Last time I was in the USA, I saw these packages of rhinestone accents on clearance for 50 cents each. I grabbed a few and thought they would be perfect for our weekly card at craft night.
Now this is a shared stash card. I couldn't decide on the snippet of DP that sits behind the words...so I brought over a dozen or more various DP's. We hummed and hawed and finally Lisa remembered this piece of teal damask! I had brought the same paper in pink, grey, or yellow damask but didn't have any teal left...so this is a shared snippets card. The cardstock is from my snippets and the DP from hers! Gosh, maybe I will have to share anything I win!!! I am going to make a few more...next time I think I will use the different shade of damask with a bit of coloured cardstock behind them...but that takes more time, so it is not suitable for our shared cards.
Keeping in mind our quick and easy cards have to be no longer than 15 minutes from start to finish, this is a fairly straightforward card... what you see is what you get! The background is the white base card but my photo has made it look pink! Funny how you never notice little boo boo's till the card is enlarged...it looks like I have managed to tear a wee edge of the damask trim...ugggh!
