Card of the Week: The One Pad Challenge Week Nine

Another wonderful week of making cards.     

I finally got on the bunting bandwagon with this 'I love you' card.  Buntings are everywhere in paper crafting - cards, scrapbook pages, mini books.  They are so fun and such a simple embellishment; I'm not sure why it took me so long to use them.  They were the perfect thing to add to the top of this card and I will definitely be including them in my designs in the future.

This card is blank.  I had it lying on my table for a couple days and kept trying to add a sentiment to it, but nothing looked right.  When this is the case, I find it best to just leave it - the whole 'less is more' idea.  I love how it looks.  Very simple and elegant.

And finally, another birthday card to add to my stash; I find birthday cards the most common card I need, don't you?  I can never have too many birthday cards on hand.

So, with this weeks' creations I am up to 24 cards and 5 tags.

My pile of paper to work from is starting to look a little meager.  I am looking forward to seeing what I can come up with using the remaining scraps.

Until next week, happy card making!
