Stamp Simply--- no pictures!

Hi all! Time for another fabulous Stamp Simply challenge! Only, this one isn't from the fabulous Sharon Johnson--- we have a guest hostess this time! Heather Telford won a chance at writing up the latest Stamp Simply challenge when we celebrated the 1 year anniversary of Stamp Simply! So.... here goes! For ssnotime57 you have to design a card without using ANY image stamps -- that means no flowers, no butterflies, no snowflakes, no cute people, no nothing! The only stamps you can use are sentiment or background stamps. Feel free to use designer paper and other accessories but leave the picture stamps on the shelf! For more deets, check out Sharon's place!

My card is heavy on the pearl! I used pearl paper for my flourish (Quick Kutz Revolution die), my scalloped circle (SU punch), and then, I used my Damask background stamp, stamped it with Versamark and covered it with Pure Mica Luster Pearl powder. Add the sentiment which is from the JustRite Wedding Ensemble. Can you see that fab shimmer? Add some pearls, ivory satin ribbon, pearl paper punched with my Stampin' Up scalloped edge punch and wham, bam.... you're done! It looks like a complicated card, but it really was a quick card! I actually said to my hubby - tell me what you think of this card without really looking too close at it because I actually made it for you but I didn't want to tell you! HA! Yep, I am "that way!" LOL!
