You Make Everything Special

Some paper therapy for me today...

This is for the Splitcoaststampers Clean and Simple Challenge 112, 'Cut Up Sentiments'. 
I can handle a clean and simple card today.  It doesn't require much fuss.

I've used some birthday gifts on this card:  the Pink Paislee papers and the golden pearl and pearl flourish.

I'm keepin' it short and sweet.  Thanks for joining me.  :)

Colleen

Stamps:  Just Dandy by Mark's Finest Papers
Paper:  Pink Paislee Sweetness, white by PTI for card base
Ink:  Early Espresso
Other:  dimensionals, pearls, pearl flourish - Recollections, vintage satin ribbon and lace

Colleen, your card is super. The butterfly is a beauty and I love the pearls/flourish.
Just wanted to let you know I have blog candy if you're interested.
Take care, my friend.

This is beautiful, Colleen! I'm so glad you used some of your new Sweetness paper. It is just perfect for this CAS beauty. I love how you cut up the sentiment, and it looks awesome on the grid paper. What a quick and fun card. Love it!!

LOOOVE the beautiful colors together! I also love how you used those pearls--I have them...and I couldn't figure out how to place them on the cards (or what colors to use with them!). YOU rocked these colors:) And that lace and ribbon treatment--OH MY! You just melted my heart with this card:) BEAUTIFUL!

Oooo how pretty. Love this gorgeous paper. I like how you used minimal images and embellishments so that the paper would be the show stopper. This is so pretty. Love the pearls on the butterfly and the lace trim.

Bear Hugs,
