Any Occasion Card, Petite Pansies

Hi everyone, glad you stopped by to see one of my cards today, I hope your day/week is going well too!

Ok, one night I got tired of making wedding thank you cards and shoved them off to the side and picked up some scaps of card stock and set out to use some up and make a card too.  Here is what I came up with!  Everything is really a scrap; ribbon, card stock and the embossed image too! 

I pulled out a retired stamp set called, Petite Pansies.  I had some embossing that didn't turn out right so I cut out a mask to put over my oval and was able to stamp the image inside the frame without going onto the frame, does that make sense?  Then I took my En Francais background stamp (love this stamp) to add to my scrap of Pink Pirouette card stock, used Pretty In Pink ink with the stamp.  Used black Staz-on and my markers to color with.  It really was a quick and easy card to make!  I used one of my circle punches to round the corners with.  Card base is Elegant Eggplant.

There you go, a scrappy card and pretty too!

Have a great day,                 Mary
