Not long to go now

A quickie share from me today as I am off on my travels again - a few days in Norfolk!
Not a holiday as such as it is part of my Presidential duties. (Not long now - just two more duties after this one!)
I am slowly trying to make my stash more balanced - I have made a few baby cards and in the last couple of days have concentrated a little on Love cards which can be used for engagements or anniversaries etc
This one was a simple CAS card made with my much loved Hero Arts flourish stamp and a snippet of red card.
The flourish is stamped with Encore Metallic Silver - got a lovely shiny surface in real life.
A die cut stitched heart and some blingy gems and the sentiment stamped in Versafine Crimson Red.
Just rounded off the corners so it didn't look too uninteresting and plain!

Overall it may be a simple card but I like it!

So that's it for me until the end of the week. We have really high winds here so the long 5 hour journey is going to be fun..... not. Hoping it eases a little the further South and East we get!
Thanks for looking at my share today - see you all soon! x

That is one really beautiful flourish stamp and love it in the silver. I don't class it as a simple card at all, I class it as a Classy card, the touch of red is superb.
