I found this card idea earlier last week – it is so simple but looks so nice!  I used it for my class on Friday – as a quick and simple – Stampin’ 101 type of card.  The idea is from Kristen Moore.  I actually simplified my card a little bit more by just stamping the flowers – she actually embossed hers.

The shadowing on the flowers is created using a Versa Marker!  It just makes the paper a shade darker where ever you add the marker – which is clear VersaMark ink.  I used Rich Razzleberry ink and then added the ribbon on the top.  The card base is Kraft card stock which will be called Crumb Cake in the new Color Collections.  Or I could say this is Crumb Cake formerly known as Kraft!

I made mine into a Mother’s Day card so it fits the Late Night Stampers challenge for this week – which is to create something for Mother’s Day.  This would also be pretty for weddings or a shower.  I hope you like this quick and easy card.

And by the way Stampin’ Up! has this stamp set – Fifth Avenue Floral – and several others on sale this month.  So if you have had your eye on it – be sure to get before the month is over.  The other sets on sale are – Greenhouse Garden, Flower Fancy and Trendy Trees.  All are 20% off.
