Say it With Love

Hello there. Oh it's been chilly as of late, I thought we were getting into the spring time not the autumn winter. Hopefully the nice warm wether is on its ways very soon. Can't wait to get back to crafting with my craft room door open wide, looking out into my garden and the music on loud. Not that my garden is much to look out onto. I could do with a ground force make over, It can look like a jungle sometimes in the summer if I don't try keep the grass under control.
 Sometimes it's nice to send a simple but elegant card to who you want to know your thinking of, wishing a happy birthday or just wanting to send them some love. I feel this card really does that. It's made only using 3 colours. Keeping it to 2 or 3 set colours can help make it look simple but elegant. There is plenty of need of cards that are full of colour and embellishments and bling but it's also nice to keep it simple using set colours such as this card. I love using black to great and a small Matt and layer outline. It just draws the eye in and makes each individual element standout. 
 Such a lovely card to be given for many occasions.
