Thanks and a Quick Card

First of all, thank you so very much for all the congratulations---I am trying to catch up but I just wanted to let you know that you all really touched my heart. I am amazed at all the people who took the time to welcome me on the DD thread, send emails, leave comments here...etc. Thank you so much!

Since I only had a little bit of time this morning (my kids are home from school!)....I thought I would make a quick card. I pulled out one of my all-time favorite My Favorite Things sets called Boho Blossoms and created this:
It just took a few moments. I embossed the large heart with red embossing powder (Ranger) and cut it out. Then, I embossed the smaller heart with black detail embossing powder (Ranger) and cut it out and popped it on top. I added some rhinestones stickers and layered the heart over the cool swirl (Prima) crystal design.
I embossed the sentiment in black and added a few more rhinestones and done!

Even when you don't have much time--you have time for a quick card!

Don't forget to enter to win the blog candy here.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love red and black together, it looks so elegant. I believe it would take me more then a few minutes. That would be an all nighter for me. Beautiful card.
