A little bit of bling goes a long way

It's been a long day full of good and bad things but hey that's life and we just have to roll with the punches and deal with things the best we can. One thing great thing about the last two days is that I unexpectedly got to hang out with two of the strongest and most determined women that I know other than my mum. Spending time with them was my way of celebrating International Women's Day. I am blessed to be surrounded with very confident and capable women who can do pretty much anything they put their minds to doing and for this I will always be thankful, I am sure all of you out there can relate to this. Anyway, for all the women out there today is the day to celebrate your greatness.

Today I am sharing a very simple card that is part of the group of cards I am submitting to sell at the  shop I sell my cards at. They want to have a ready supply of love themed cards all through the year, this is going to keep me busy but will  also be lots of creative fun. I decided to do a more traditional card than the other ones I have recently shared. For this card I used some of my favourite digi's from Tracy Ann Digital Art . I created the swing with two thin lines and a blue rectangle on open office, the grass is also a green rectangle added to the back of the digital image, the sentiment added is printed in one of my favourite font's being LainieDaySH. The last thing I did was add diamante's which I think gives the card a lift.
