Simple Elegance

Sometimes I make a card and it just gives me a happy - that's this card. It turned out just as I envisioned!
Supplies: papers from Kaisercraft;
Marvy vase punch;
Lace from Hero Arts;
tulips quilled by me

The quilling is done in a single layer,
and the vase on double-foam to allow room
to tuck the fronds underneath
I was inspired by the Simple Elegance Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World - specifically, the damask pattern of the rug, and the vase of pink tulips. I also vowed to include lots of white space (well, lots for me, anyhow) and yep, I love how it turned out! This Trigger is open until Sunday March 25, so get cracking. Look at all the elements in the picture!
 
xoxo,
Jessi
