"Plain and Simple"

Hello all, hope you have had a good day.
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my work,  I am so delighted that you take time to come visit and leave your comments.   
Welcome to Claire my latest follower, thank you very much to joining us here, love the photo.  
We had a beautiful day yesterday there was even a heat in the sun.    What did we get today??? rain, rain and even more rain!!!  
Met Hazel this morning ........well we had to catch up on the chat we missed on Monday...........!!!!!
We met up with another two friends and Oh! Man! did we chat!!!   It`s Good to they say, we all  went our separate ways with a smile on our faces so that has to be a good thing.

 Today`s card is plain and simple
Base card 5 x 7 white card stock
Pink card I pierced round the edge
Paler pink card, I very slightly distressed the edges
I inked my SB Paisley embossing folder with TH Old Paper Distress Ink using my Brayer
Popped white card in and ran that though my GC
Piece of lace from my box tied in a 5 loop bow on my Homemade Bow Maker 
Added a gem thingy I found in my box
Lace across the front of the card with a stamped greeting on card pieces I cut into a Fish Tail

That`s it for today
Thank you for sopping by I really appreciate it
 Will be back soon
