15 Minute Card

I was able to make this card in 15 minutes thanks to SU's gorgeous stencils. I got the Elegant Trio stencils. Besides this flourish, there's a fleur de lis and a flower. All 3 are the perfect size for cards; this flourish is the largest. (The stencils are in the Decor Elements catalog linked on the right.)
I got my color combo from the Color Coach: Pretty in Pink, Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso. I sponged Rich Razzleberry and Early Espresso ink over the stencil. TIP: I used Dotto to hold the stencil in place. Then all I needed was a sentiment and that gorgeous Rich Razzleberry satin ribbon.
The card is 4 X 5 1/4 and attached to a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 piece of Early Espresso to make it full card size. I used a border punch on the inside of the card as a little surprise. TIP: I used a few tiny dots of Mono Multi adhesive to adhere the scallop border to the back piece of cardstock.
You could make a bunch of these in a variety of colors and sentiments for a great gift that wouldn't take much time at all.
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes; Paper: Pretty in Pink, Early Espresso; Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso; Accessories: sponge, Elegant Trio stencils, Rich Razzleberry satin ribbon, scallop trim border punch
Happy stamping!
