Brilliant Shaped card

Good Morning

Hopefully I have made it back to civilization, but I still won't have any internet access until tomorrow.  I should be able to use my phone, depending on how close we are to a tower in this beautiful nature town, but I will be back to the real world tomorrow and then I can check my computer and check in with all of my favorite readers.

Here is another quick card that I was inspired by Audrey over at Cute and Some. She definitely has some cute projects and she is such an amazing lady and lately always on the go.  Audrey and I are also in a "Craft it Forward" project, so if you would be interested in receiving a handmade craft go here (I am still looking for 2 participant, but you must comment on the original post) or here (Audrey is also looking for two more) and sign up.  There are a few rules, so head on over and check them out.

So onto my card...again, Audrey had a card on her blog a while back and I just fell in love with it.  You can see hers here and I wanted to "lift" it, but it never fails...I always wind up with something completely different.

Of course, again I used a Getting Cricky stamp from the Food for Thought and the Amazing You sets...mixing and matching is so much fun.  All the paper was from my stash and the ribbon also.  I embossed the bottom with my cuddlebug using the dots folder and added the 3 flat pearls.  The "tag" is the same file as the card itself, just scaled down and then I added a piece of vellum after I embossed it with the cuddlebug Flourished Frame (just the tip of it).  I really didn't care so much for this folder, but I like the way just a little bit of it worked for this card.  I hope I've inspired you to make a shaped card, even if it's just a simple one.
