A Beautiful Thing

These are a few simple cards I made using the stamp set “A Beautiful Thing”. They are all very similar, especially the three which use the same layout but a different color combination. I think I need to come up with more variety when using this stamp set! :)

Faux Silk is a technique that I really want to try one day. You did such a wonderful job - and your other cards are sweet and simple! Even though they are all the same design, the variety of colors gives each one their own look. I will definitely be casing these!!
