Ginny Maxam you are here

Today I want to show you a super simple way to make an elegant card!
I'm using the Beautiful Lace Flowers set from Graciellie Designs !

This is so simple all you need is a few simple tools,  Really Good Paper and maybe a little nail polish if you want to add some bling - I did!

One of my favorite papers and one I used for this card is  #120 Heavenly White paper from Paper Temptress, it is so beautiful with a slight pearl finish! 

I printed my images Neenah Solar White# 80 also from Paper Temptress and  fussy cut

I added gold with a paint pen.  For this card I just looked around for a few simple things and a gold paint pen was sitting on my desk!

I don't do my nails, I never have, these are working hands and I keep my nails short - I do however like a little sparkly bling on my cards!  Nail polish is fast and easy to use, comes in it's own gloss medium and I can throw it in the grocery store cart!

and the finished card:

This card was made with one piece of paper and a few simple supplies.
Don't you just love art?  It is your world and your statement, no right or wrong!

                                                   I'm blessed to have you reading my blog!
Thanks for stopping by!

So Creative! I would love to copy your craft, if only to see the look on my husband's face when he saw me buying fingernail polish! (Never in the 30 years he's known me, ha ha!) Such a lovely card with beautiful lights.
