Just a Simple Card


I have been such a bad blogger lately. It is amazing how fast time has been flying by these days. I have been spending a lot of time focusing on school and getting a routine down. Unfortunately, that hasn't left me very much time for blogging or even being creative. However, this is a card that came about kind of by accident. It started out to be another card (you may recognize the colors) for an image I was working with, but after I put the ribbon on I decided I liked it just the way it was. I just love how simple it is and the colors and the embossing is so pretty, I just didn't think it needed anything else. So, here is my simple card with no stamping, just using an embossing folder and some ribbon. When I decide what I will use it for, I will decorate the inside to fit the occasion.

I am really looking forward to having Monday off from school. I am hoping to get my house decorated for fall. I just love fall and decorating for fall gives me so much pleasure. I hope to find some time for blog hopping as well...and maybe I'll even get a card or two made.

See ya next time, thanks for stopping by.

Supplies
Paper-Olive (TAC), yam (Bazzill)
Other-ribbon (Offray), victoria embossing folder (Cuttlebug)

I am with you, I love decorating for fall too. I haven't done much decorating since we got married, but I pulled out some fall decorations today.

I think your card is beautiful. You are right, the embossing and that gorgeous ribbon are all this card needs.
