My natural tendency, when I'm challenged to use a few different elements, is to completely "overdo" the card and end up with something so busy that it gets thrown away. I've gone in quite the opposite direction today, managing to keep it simple!
Last night I had a wonderful time playing with my Envelope Punch Board, from Stampin' Up!, making cute paper bows. Here's a link to the fabulous tutorial that introduced me to this fun, addictive pastime: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwMv0zo9vJ8
