Soft and Simple

Here is my post today at Classy Cards 'n Such!
And don't forget to join in our challenge, you can find it HERE

Hello Classy Friends.
Diane with you today sharing my Soft and Simple  card!

This was so easy to make, but I think it has a very clean and elegant look,
and also would make a gorgeous birthday or sympathy card as well.

Using a plain white card stock to build on, I embossed a panel with

The next panel was stamped using Impression Obsession Lavender stamp.
It was very easy to color, by using the marker to stamp technique,
which is, use your markers to color directly on your stamp,
huff on your stamp, then stamp and viola', a beautifully colored image!

I added a sheer ribbon and bow and tiny sequins to finish.

Each layer was popped up using Joy! Foam Pads Small.

Entering the following favorite  challenges:

This is absolutely utterly sweet and elegant with a bit of shabby thrown in for good measure. I LOVE it! The sequins look like rhinestones at first glance. So lovely to see anything other than a Christmas card this time of year. I hope to be back to non-Christmas cards by next week.
