Simply Beautiful


My darling childhood friend Erica has asked me to make some Asian inspired notecards for her Mom. I knew JUST where to head for the perfect paper! The Paper Source!! Red, black and gold was my assignment and it literally took me minutes to find the perfect paper. And it's so beautiful that I honestly had to do minimal work for these. With a base of SU! Whisper White and mattes of Real Red and Basic Black I was good to go. I used SU!'s retired 1/4" black grosgrain ribbon with a small piece of gold trim tucked in the knot for some extra zip. I sat and stared at these for a long time thinking...it needs something else. But the paper is just so beautiful that I didn't want to disrupt it by putting anything on top of it. So...I ran it by my DH...who always tells me what he likes and what he doesn't and he agreed that it didn't need anything. So while they are very simple...they are simply beautiful!!

I can't wait to give them to my friend for her Mom!!

I hope that everyone has a very creative weekend!! Happy Friday!
