Hi everyone! Here is the card I promised yesterday. I'm sorry I didn't get it posted until now. I've been busy with the kids & helping them with homework.....as well as a some other deadlines.

The stamps I've used here are from Flourishes. The Damask background is embossed with clear embossing powder. It's a simple, yet elegant card...one of my favorite types!

I have to make this a quick post, as my sister just stopped by for a visit.

Thanks for looking!!

Card Stock: Blue Bayou, Basic Gray, Going Gray
