Elizabeth in Black and Daffodil

Hooray! It's Friday!
I love Fridays - even though I work from home, there is something about the promise of the weekend that just makes me happy. Maybe it's because I know that Mark will be home with us or maybe it's because I feel more free to relax and enjoy my time. Either way, I dearly love my weekends!

Today's post is yet another card done with the fabulous Elizabeth A La Carte stamp - are you tired of this one yet? I hope not, because I love it so and I know you'll be seeing a lot of it!

My card is using Daffodil Delight, Basic Black and Whisper White. I used a piece of Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper as an accent panel. It's layered on a piece of Basic Black cardstock then wrapped with a piece of 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon tied up in a little knot. Simple and elegant!

The Daffodil cardstock base is stamped partially with the Elizabeth stamp in Daffodil Delight ink, just to give it a little emphasis. I then stamped Elizabeth with Black Staz-On ink on Whisper White cardstock. This was layered on pieces of Daffodil Delight and Basic Black cardstock.
The greeting is from the Three Leaves A La Carte stamp and I've just stamped it on a scrap piece of white cardstock and punched it out with the Small Oval Punch. It's popped up on one of my favorite Stampin' Dimensionals! :)

For a final touch, I placed three of the new Rhinestone Jewels in a row at the top of the stamped panel. These Jewels are simply fabulous and add just the perfect accent in so many places! Plus the price point is amazing - just $4.95 for a package of 150 pieces!
