Hope your day is going great and thanks for stopping by my blog!

Today I am showing off a Quick and Simply card using products from the Beauty of the Earth Suite.  This suite is so versatile I have designed several cards using this suite all on its own and also combining it with other stamp sets.  It is one that will get you a long way on making cards!

For this card I used Beauty of Friendship Bundle (Stamps set and dies), Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper, coordinating cardstock plus a few other items from our annual catalog.  A full list of supplies will be listed below.

This card goes together really quick!

If this is your first time to my blog don’t forget to add your email to the right under the “Follow Me’ section then you will be notified each time I add a new card to my blog!
