Happy Birthday Dana

Hmmm. Turns out I can make a card without Copics and still enjoy making it. I just love the look of white ink on dark colored paper. It's always so striking to me. And as simple as this card is, it took a couple of tries to get the flower in just the right spot. You know how persnickety I can be about such things. So what we have here is another simple card that makes me very happy. Lots of times, when I finish a card, I like it, take a million couple pictures of it, look at it for a couple of days if I haven't given it away, blog about it and then realize something I would've changed. Ok, I usually have an idea before I blog a card, but if I've finished it and it took some serious time, I won't do it over. Yep. Lazy. You got me. But if it can easily be fixed, I'll fix it. This card, I actually like just the way it is. And I've already given it to Dana, so it's really too late. But if I were to make it again (which I'd only do if I needed an emergency card), I'd probably make it the same. So there you have it. Simple satisfaction. I don't get that a lot.

Stamps: Friends til the End & Birthday Basics (PTI), Ink: Fresh Snow (PTI), Paper: white & Scarlet Jewel (PTI), Accessories: Scralet Jewel satin ribbon (yep, you guessed it, PTI)

Yep, I really like the white ink on the dark red, too. And that color red is so yummy. Very classic card!

Can't get the full color-thingy, but what I do see is a beautiful card with an even more beautiful ribbon!

Love it!

Ooh, I like those colors together. Were you having copic withdrawls when you finished this card... LoL ?
