Lately I've been using a lot of images using cute stamps and I wanted to do something a little elegant. This is my attempt in making an elegant card with a cute image!

The image is from the Pink Cat Studio Sweetheart stamp set. I don't know. . .what do you think? Do you you think it looks elegant? I love the designer paper. . .it has an elegant look to it, huh?

I colored Lily & Billy with my Copic Markers. ..this was actually a quicky card. . .not much embellishments or anything like that. With elegant cards. . .you have to sort of keep the design simple. It's harder to achieve the elegant look, I think. You have to sort of rely on the designer paper, colors of your card or ribbon to make the card stand out but remain simple!!


I decided to work on the inside a little. Just trying to use up some of my designer paper. I have way too many of them.

Hey, if I haven't stopped by your blog to say hello it's just that I've been so busy this week! I try to fit time to visit on a daily basis and I do so when I can . . .I'll stop by and say hello soon!!

Anyway, be sure to add your Pink Cat Studio Blinkie and good luck on the contest!!

What an adorable card! I've never bought Pink Cat Studio stamps. Do they just stick to acrylic blocks??
