I Think You're Lovely Card

I decided to use a simple layout for this card and the color combination of Crumb Cake and Whisper White to keep it simple. I stamped the wording and image three times since its all on one stamp.  I stamped it once in Pool Party and punched it out using the 1 3/4" Circle Punch.  I stamped it twice in Crisp Cantaloupe and cut one out using the Deco Labels Framelits and cut out just the word "LOVELY" by hand. Then I layered them on top of one another with dimensionals to give it some depth.  I also added the word "LOVELY" in Crisp Cantaloupe on top of the layers to give it a focal point.

After looking at my card for a few days, I decided it needed something more so I added some ribbon.  Since I don't have any Crisp Cantaloupe ribbon, I improvised with some 3/4" Calypso Coral Chevron Ribbon and added some 7/16" Natural Trim Ribbon on top using glue dots.  This helped make the ribbon not look so bright and tied it in a bit more with the Natural Trim.  I love how simple and easy this layout was to put together.  I hope you'll give it a try the next time you're crafting.
