easy elegant card

Good morning stampers!
Are you in need of a super quick yet elegant card?  Then today's sample falls into that category.

I began with a Whisper White card base. (5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored at 4-1/4")

The stamped image is from a new stamp set called "World of Dreams."  I colored the image with Stampin' Markers in Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride.  The image was stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock measuring 2-3/4" x 4".  The sentiment is from the stamp set "Wetlands" and was stamped in StazOn Black ink.  I added a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock measuring 1-1/2" x 2-3/4".  I ran this piece through the Big Shot and the Zig Zag embossing folder to give it some texture, then glued in place using Tombo glue.   The stamped image was adhered to a piece of Basic Black cardstock measuring 3" x 4-1/4". I wrapped a piece of matching Pear Pizzazz ribbon around it and tied a simple knot.  The focal image was added to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals. 

For added dimension and bling, I punched six flowers out of Blushing Bride cardstock using the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack.  These flowers were glued on with Tombo, then I added pearls to the flower centers.

This would be another great card to have on hand, and simply stamp an appropriate sentiment inside to suit the occasion.

Hope you find time to be creative today!
