Damask Notecard...keeping it simple

Good morning! I have a little something to share that threw me for the biggest loop the day I made it. I stared at this card for more than it's fair share of minutes until I finally realized just didn't NEED anything else! LOL! Have you ever run across an image so lovely it can stand on it's own? That's what happened here. Now I for one often live in the "more is better" camp so this took me a minute to understand what was happening! Trust me people, I tried ribbon, buttons, patterned paper, bling and more and nope, this card was done in 3 steps! Amazing! Just stamp that juicy damask image from Papertrey Ink Damask Designs, add a scalloped cardstock edge to the bottom of the note card and highlight the image with a few liquid pearls. Done, finito, no more. Call it a note card, gals, 'cause that's what it is. For once I actually believe I could make a whole package of these in no time...that never happens to me :)
Thanks for looking!

This is something I could do! I love simple :) Now these liquid pearls....I like this. I think I need to look through your studio, there is alot hidden in there. I always learn something new from you. Hard to believe after so many years scrapping together and sharing pages.

Love its simplicity!! It really doesn't need anything else. Love the liquid pearls...I really thought they were half pearls, even when I enlarged the pic! I didn't realize it, until I read your post. These would make a great gift set!! :>
