Okay. . .I call this my lazy style card! LOL! Reason be is that everything about it was super quick. . .no technique, no coloring, no stamping, just glue and stick everything on! Yeah. . .it's fun! I love cards that require very little work. .. LOL! I decided to use my SU designer paper . . .which unfortunately, I'm almost down to only 1 sheet from the pack. Whaaaaaaaaa! It's okay, it took me over 2 years to actually use up the designer paper in this pack. I mean, that's an accomplishment. I rarely ever use up a pack!

I hand dyed the seam biding with SU ink. . .can't remember which color ink, crinkled it up and just let it dry all crinkly and all. I stuck a beaded pin through a butterfly button on to the bow. . .fun stuff!

Last but not least, I added a ribbon that already had a sentiment buckle on to the chipboard heard and topped it off by gluing buttons. . .that's all! Nice and simple. . I love it!

Hey stop by my Crafty Friday Mash Up Linky Party as well and link a project you created. . .any DYI project is accepted. Hope you'll play along. . .:)

Have a wonderful weekend folks!

Really Cute card. I have a question though. I am just getting started making cards and love all the bows and extras. Do you put these cards in an envelope, and if you do, is there a special way to keep the embellishment and bows from getting crushed. Or do you put them in a box for presentation?
Thank you for your inspirations.
Best wishes, Carol
