The greatest

I'm back again today with another card using supplies from Simon's May Card Kit.  The papers this month are just breathtaking, in shades of pinks, greys, taupes, pale golds, very understated but each one so elegant.  They're double-sided, so it's really hard cutting into them!

For this card I focused in on the gorgeous paper that has a lacy border printed on it, and then found some others that I thought looked nice with it.  I only stamped the rose and leaves, used the little arrow that was included in the embellishments, and covered 2 of the chipboard hearts with some of the paper.  Love this color combination!  I just added some silver pearls of my own.  


  1. Just gorgeous, Lin! I love all the layers you use on your cards!!

    Thanks for visiting Fifi's Daughter!!

  2. oh yes super elegant colours and design. everything works so well together on this beauty! Happy Friday :)

  3. The lacy border is beautiful! Love the little hearts too!

  4. SWOONING over this, my friend!! This is such a gorgeous layout, with that lacy border! I love how you didn't use the pink and only used the gold with the taupe....

    I could kick myself for not getting this kit! xo

  5. Love what you did with May's kit. I was searching for ideas this morning and came upon these two cards. I have already used the paper with the lace but I'm sure I can come up with something. I often save your cards to CASE later. I like your style.--Lori

  6. Beautiful, Lin - those are very lovely soft colours :)
