If you got here from Tosh's blog you are in the right place.  


For my card I am using His Gift stamp setFor this card I chose to go with a soft slightly distressed cream color.  I just love this sentiment quote that comes in the set.  This is one of those cards that you can make a few as you go in different colors.  I kept it pretty simple with the background pattern, added a pretty ornate Spellbinder's frame, then softly sponged inside the sentiment oval.  I finished with  a few gold pearls, seam binding bow, and topped with a pearlized gold framed button from my stash.  I just love the richness and the simplicity of this card.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the hop!  Next up is Angie' blog.
