wishing you lots of everything wonderful

after starting and throwing away three cards, i realized something was off. i wasn't coming up with anything good. so i decided to just do a clean and simple card.
basic and easy just so i could make one card that was a keeper :)

i started with black cardstock, cut and scored to a standard sized card 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. then i cut a strip of white cardstock.

i tied black ribbon around the white cardstock, then slid the ribbon up to the top of the cardstock so that i could stamp the sentiment, using black colorbox chalk ink. the stamp is hero arts huge hugs stamp set.

the butterfly sticker is from a cute sticker set that i got at target. i love the bright colors and glitter on the flowers and butterflies.

the queen and co. photo turns are an embellishment i haven't used in soooooo long, but i absolutely love them.

i used a glue dot to secure the knot of the ribbon in place. then adhered the white cardstock to the card base.

the brads are recollections rhinestone brads. i keep them, and a lot of other small embellishments in a making memories small embellishment organizer box. i used a pencil to mark where i wanted the brads placed.

simple, easy, and it broke my awful streak of horrible cards.
thanks for looking!
