This really is the simplest of cards so I can't imagine why I made such a meal of it! I stamped this fabulous flower image from the free Sale-a-bration set Sprinkled Expressions in Jet Black Stazon ink, and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then repeated the process with the sentiment and finished the card by adding bling and rounding one corner.
I tried to get a photo of how shiny this is against the lovely suede finish of the Naturals Ivory card stock but after three tries I gave up - this is the best I could manage!
Edited to add this version:
I've always loved the contrast between Naturals Ivory and Very Vanilla and just wondered what it would look like with this design!
Here's the first card I made, which turned out to be unsuitable for either challenge but which I thought was a good idea at the time! The image is stamped onto the gorgeous, glossy white card stock and it does look quite effective in real life.
It's exactly the same design as the cream card except I've kept the image mat to contrast with the shiny card stock...
...oh and also one of the gems has come off in the photographic process. I give up! It must be time for a large coffee!
