Make It Monday #90

Hi there!

It's been a bit of a crazy week at my house and the chances for crafting and or blogging has been pretty much nil.

I did managed to steal a few minutes on Saturday morning to whip up a card for today's 

I used a beautiful image called "All Dressed Up" from our sponsor this week.

The image is so pretty that I wanted it to be the focal point of my card so I decided not to add any embellishments. I opted instead for this pretty Stampin' Up! paper called Beyond The Garden.

To find out more about the fabulous Paper Party Promo running until the end of May

To add a little interest to the card I decided to run the image and sentiment through the Bigshot to emboss.

Make It Monday #90 is now open.
