Best Wishes

Sometimes I need a completely flat card - and I rarely make them.  I am always too tempted by buttons and bling and ribbon.
But this card is entirely flat.  I like the dimension a little bit of stitching can add.
Here I combined some beautiful Imaginisce products with a sentiment stamp from THIS PTI set.  The black polka paper is a great backdrop for a brighter complementary colour.  And I love this rub-on from THIS set from the elegant Love and Cherish collection.
It's Tuesday - the week's nearly half way through :)
