Hi there!  Today I wanted to post a card I made for the challenge on the CAS-ual Friday challenge blog.  This week's challenge, found here was to create a clean & simple card using pastel colors and black.

I stamped my flower image and colored it using my so saffron and certainly celery Stampin' Up! markers.  I decided to add my ribbon just left of my stamped image on the same panel.  I tied some twine through the center of my button and then I placed that button in the center of my ribbon.

Along the top of my so saffron designer series paper I used my scallop border punch and just along the bottom of my card front I decided to add bit of scoring (using my score tool) and some paper piercing.  Paper scoring and paper piercing are two great ways to add a little something to your card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great night!
