Very Quick & Simple Card

Don't you love quick & simple cards that don't look so quick or simple. I find myself making a lot of these lately, though they used to be the hardest cards for me to make.

What makes this card so quick is that the flower wreath is acutally a digital stamp I got at Fred She Said. The best part about this stamp is that she is offering it for FREE, and it comes in 8 color versions!

I jumped at the chance to grab these because I love the look of the small peg stamps at Rubber Stamp Tapestry.  That is exactly the look this image has without all the work.

All I did was size it, print it out, add some glitter to the wreath, a Prima flower and went around the edges with my stipple brush. Easy, huh. Adding the glitter to the wreath really added to the card without taking a lot of time.

Tip: To help make a digital image not look so "digital", just added some glitter, embossing, pearls, rhinestones or even print out a few and layer them like paper tole.

This is the sentiment I stamped on the inside. I was thriled that I actually had a sentiment that went perfectly with the image.

After putting the card together it sill looked a bit naked so I added some outling stickers. They are just about the simplest way to add that certain something to a project.

I am entering this card into the following challenge:
