Hi there, friends.  I hope you all are well!

It's been quite a while since I've been crafty. I miss the days when I was on a design team, and I had a reason to get out the paper, stamps and dies on a daily basis. Now it's too easy to let the other "stuff" of life come before my need to create. But today I took a little time for me, and I'm back with something clean and simple. 

There is very little stamping here, just MFT's Distressed Background Blocks stamped in white craft ink. The rest was done with MFT Die-namics: Fishtail Flags Layers STAX and Happy Hellos. Cardstock is Kraft and Red Hot, and the patterned paper is from the Lost & Found Two: Rosy 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye. 

I finished the card with rounded corners, zig-zag stitching, and a trio of adhesive rhinestones. It was quick and easy!

That's all for now! I'll be carving out more crafty time, so I'll be back with more to share with you soon. Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is so pretty, Christina. I love how you layered the die cut & the banners. I couldn't agree with you more about how motivating design teams are! (I miss them too). Thanks so much for the inspiration!
