Elegant Encouragement...

Hi there, peeps!

Sorry, my post is up a little late today as I have been hit...kind of more like smacked, with a 2nd round of stomach flu :(  Totally NOT fun.   Thankfully, my sweet DH is home today and has saltines and chicken soup at the ready.  So it's just me and my laptop (and the puppy ;) curled up under a blanket at the moment.  Could be worse things, right?  ;)

Today I have a super simple yet elegant card I want to show you from the February KEY INGREDIENTS kit by Taylored Expressions. Have you seen this month's kit?  Check it out, in all it's BEAUTY:

Isn't it pretty?  It features yummy textured paper and brads (a WHOLE pack of them!) from the My Mind's Eye "Lush" collection, some gorgeous ribbon, rich jewel-toned cardstock, flowers, and MORE!  If you're not subscribed yet to the Key Ingredients kits, you're missing out on a SWEET DEAL!  Each month, a new kit comes to you door that is chock full of cardstock, papers, and embellishments that literally take the guesswork OUT of cardmaking!  There are sooo many possibilities, from clean and simple as I'll show you here, to a little more intricate which you can view on the KEY INGREDIENTS BLOG!

For my project today, I used the New Beginnings stamp set by Taylored Expressions and I just adore this Frame it Up #1 die that goes perfectly w/ the framed stamp.  I'm also really partial to this two-step stamping rose-isnt it beautiful?  I added one to my card along with some ribbon and some flocked paper (SOOO yummy!) and there ya have it-that's pretty much it. The beautiful and encouraging sentiment is also from the New Beginnings set.

You can find out more about the Key Ingredients subscriptions HERE.   If you're not already a subscriber, there are a lot of benefits you can start enjoying when you sign up, including a one-time offer for 10% of your TE purchases each month, exclusive access to the Key Ingredients Idea Gallery (brought to you by ME and our FANTASTIC Design team!), and how much FUN would it be to look forward to that package coming to your door each month!?
