A quick design

Came across this card on Paperlicious' blog several weeks ago, and besides prompting me to order the paper from SU! (yes, it really is gorgeous!), I really liked the simplicity of it. I had several cards I needed to make, so, using different patterned papers, cardstock and stamps (and, of course, ribbon), I came up with a few cards that I was really pleased with quite quickly. I am definitely adding this design to my stash!
Patterned paper is from Basic Grey and Amuse (can't remember who makes the red/black dp). Cardstock is SU! and Bazzill. Thank you stamps are from Hero Arts, sympathy stamp is from My Favorite Things. Cream and black ribbon is Basic Basic from Michael's; green silk ribbon is from May Arts and sheer green ribbon is from Midori. Used the SU! large oval and new scalloped oval punches. Also used 2 of the new EK Success border punches, which I love using, but find them to be a bit persnickity. They prefer paper the weight of SU cardstock or Basic Grey patterned paper. Anything lighter or heavier become problematic.
Thanks for peeking!
