Easy

Hello and a wonderful Monday. I just got up because i hared the school bus waiting outside for my son.. i was like hu! what is going on.. it is Easter Monday :-) iam telling you 7 years in the USA and iam still not familiar with everything.
My card for today was a disaster.. i really must say i was so happy once it was done. Besides that i had not much time this past week with the kids home to craft - nothing went smoothly by making the card. It started out that i wanted to make a card which was simple and easy to mass produce. I think the layout is good for that .. the punched border looks "fancy" but does not cost much to recreate on a bunch of cards. Than i colored my image in and i simply was not happy with it. I than struggled with the ribbon - and than i just wanted to add 3 little Robins Nest glass beads and they left pink residue on my white paper :-( so i had to play with other embellishments to cover that up. I hate when things like this happen.
Stamp: Tilda with rose from the Pink Collection is available at Magnolia-licous
Papers: Stampin up and Bittersweet Basic Grey all scraps
Embellishments: Robins Nest, Prima Marketing, Nestabilities, Martha Stewart "Fond", "Doily Lace" punch, Martha Stewart red glitter around the focal point to create a border, Satin ribbon Michaels
This card is created for this weeks challenge over on Stamp with fun! i hope you can join in.. we have all used Pinks and Browns for our cards this week!
