Diamonds are a girls best friend.....

Hi all! Hope you are having a fantabulous week! It's my busy work week, so I have a quickie of a card for you today. I used the new Fanciful Flourishes from Flourishes that was released a couple weeks ago. When I look at it this card, I think of Marilyn Monroe in her pink satin dress with long black gloves and lots of diamonds singing Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend! I have no idea why! I wasn't from that era -- didn't even see the movie! LOL!

This card is really quite simple! I used several elements from the Fanciful Flourishes set. I used the Damask stamp from the set with some Versamark ink for a nice watermark effect. Then, I used the border stamp, a sentiment from the set, the shadow heart and the flourishy heart. You can check out the set HERE. And, the rest --- is just matting it up, adding LOTS of bling, some black satin ribbon, a border punch (EK Success) and bam... done! I did use some silver mirror paper as a secondary mat because I wanted this baby to be glam! ;-)

And that, my friends, is it - a quick and easy card with a super feminine flair! Since it's one that could only be given to my hubby, I am thinking I need to add this to my stash for when he has those out of town trips. I like to slip little love notes in his suitcase. I know. I know -- pretty "schmoopy!"

Hope you are all having great week! See you back here soon!

Oh my lovely artist...you make it all sound so simple! yet your creations are astonishing! I really enjoy your colors...at the last moment I caught the sentiment. How perfect...subtle but so in the heart! The watermark is perfectly classy and such an elegant backdrop for the flourish heart. I so enjoyed how you mounted this, again on the striking black. And of course, bling, well...who are you talking to! haha. Thanks again Julie. You made my wake up bright and cheery! LOVING GOD LOTS, Samara
