Fancy Card

Today I want to share a simple, fancy card with you.  This is one of the thank you cards I made for the order from my photographer friend at church.

This card measures 5x5 square.  I cut the flower from Serenade and the stamp is from Michael’s dollar bin.

This patterned section is cut from Lyrical Letters.  Doesn’t it just look like beautiful patterned paper?  It’s not!  Fooled ya, didn’t I?  Ok, maybe not.  But it was worth a try.

To decorate the flower, I added a black button with some bling stuck in the middle with a glue dot.  That’s it!  Super simple, but I just love it.  I really am liking the bright yellow with the black and white.  Doesn’t that bright flower just make you happy?  You could say it looks…friendly. 

“Don’t you think daisies are the friendliest flower?” 

If you don’t know this line, it’s from You’ve Got Mail.  Totally irrelevant to what I’m talking about but my mind always goes to quotes from that movie because it’s the best…movie…ever.  I know I’ve told you that before.  Can’t help myself!

I hope your day is blessed, happy and cool during this sweltering summer heat!
