There are Always Flowers

Today I'm excited to introduce another new member of our guest design team!  Karen will also be designing for Classy Cards during June and July.   Our next designer will come on board in July, so stay tuned!
My name is Karen Letchworth, and my blog is called My Cup Runneth Over.  The reason I chose that name for my blog is because I feel truly blessed by God (my cup/life overflows with His goodness), and I want my art to reflect the love and the blessings He has given to me.  I love to create pretty, shabby, country and sweet creations of all sorts.  I was absolutely THRILLED to be invited to design here at Classy Cards 'n Such and I look forward to sharing with you all.  
I live in sunny Las Vegas with my hubby of 28 years, Darren, and our three beautiful children (Andrea-26, Alicia-20, and Andrew-14).  I look forward to meeting all of you, and invite you to visit my blog and become a new follower, and I will follow and visit your blogs in return.  It's SO exciting to design for Classy Cards 'n Such because the shop is just FILLED with such WONDERFUL products, and I hope to showcase them for you in a way that will inspire you to purchase and create!  It's SO nice meeting you all, and I can't wait to get started.

This card was created using a piece of white cardstock for the base, and then adding some patterned papers from the 6x6 Simple Stories Harvest Lane Paper Pad.  You can also see some stickers from this same Simple Stories line along with a length of Natural Trim to create a border across the card.  All my layers and trims are adhered to the card using Scor-Tape.  This lovely sentiment is from the Nature's Nested Sentiments Stamp Set by Just Rite Stampers, and is stamped on white cardstock using brown ink, and the edges are touched with Tim Holtz Bundled Sage Distress Ink.  There is a row of machine stitching along the edges to give this card a home-spun, country feel.  The final touches were made by adding a sweet little blue flower by Zva Creative and dusting the edges of my card base with Crystal Ice Glitter.  
You can find all the lovely products you will need at Classy Cards 'n Such to create a quick little card much like this one.  We would love to see what YOU will create using your supplies from Classy Cards 'n Such.  Happy crafting!
Thanks, Karen, for a cute country card!
