The Greatest Joy

Happy Thursday! You know why it's happy - because it's one day closer to Friday ;) Today I have a simple but elegant card to show you using the roses from The Greatest Joy set by JustRite Stampers that are available from Stamper's Dream.

I started out with a great layout in mind but as usual, my card kind of morphed into something else. After I water coloured my roses and cut them out, I was trying to arrange them on the card as per the sketch that I had drawn up for it. It just didn't look right to me and the more things that I tried to add to the card, the more that it took away from the beautiful roses.

So, after much cutting of papers and various embellishments pulled from their storage places, I decided to leave the card looking like this. It's simple enough to be a "thinking of you" note card or elegant enough to be a wedding card because the pearls add just a touch of class :) I love when plans go awry and you still come out with something beautiful :D

Thanks for coming by today!
