Cooler Weather, Simple card

Happy Saturday! I hope you have a wonderful weekend planned. It's finally cooler here in Chicago, and that's a big relief!

This is a simple card that packs a big punch. It's one layer of Gina K's Pure Luxury cardstock, stamped with Melanie Muenchinger's Basket Buddies (brand new!) in Memento tuxedo black and colored with prismacolor pencils. I put two border treatments together, and added a few bits of bling to make the embossed border pop. A simple, thin dot ribbon frames the image.

If you want to get out there today, this is the kind of quick card that will let you get to it while still having time to get crafty. Happy stamping!
