just look at that neat diamond shape, with the oval nested inside it, and the strips along the sides that anchor it so beautifully. there are so many ways you could go with this, in pretty much any style you might choose. i went kind of shabby chic:
(patterned paper: prima, crafty secrets, sassafras, scenic route, basic grey, fancy pants; cardstock: core'dinations; bling circle and hibiscus ghost flower (used as a template): heidi swapp; chip circle: my mind's eye; cloth flower: maya road; ink: colorbox; adhesives: tombow mono runner, glue dots, 3m foam tape, sewing machine)
i've used more of the leftovers from the riley birthday set, actually. (yes, they were all still sitting in a pile, i am seriously sloth-based this week; i blame the snow!) lately i am obsessed with red, blue, pink and kraft; i'm not sure why, but at the moment a LOT of color looks really good to me! (ok, EVERYTHING outside my window is white, brown or grey...so again...i think i'm gonna blame the snow!) i went with loads of muted pattern, tons of flowery goodness, a little bling, a bit of stitching and ~WOOHOO~ another card ready for the postman!
