Simple Love & Gratitude

Simple seems to be my theme lately. I made this card last week before coming home. It was for my mother-in-law's 90th birthday!! I was a little worried that it was too simple. My supplies were pretty limited, but I think it turned out okay. And the most important part...Ruthie loved it and it made her smile :) !
The heart is covered in Crystal Effects so it's shiny and the Black 1/4" grosgrain ribbon sparkles because I colored it with a Clear Spica Glitter pen. Both of those details are hard to see in this photo (sorry). I used the new SU set, Love You Much along with the coordinating Three Hearts punch. Finished size is 4 1/4 square (my favorite size). I used Riding Hood Red, Basic Black & White cardstock. Dimensionals added dimension to my card, lol!
An another simple card made with the same supplies, but this one was a thank you note for a very special friend :) ... you can see the Crystal Effects on the heart and birds a little better in this photo ~

Good news ~ I'll have BLOG CANDY on Friday !!! Thanks for stopping by & be sure to stop by Friday, check out the goodies & get yourself signed up :) !
