Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge

I'm so excited to be participating in this month's PTI Blog Hop!  I decided to pull out one of the very first stamp sets that I ever purchased, Around & About Sentiments.  I made this card with my husband in mind, and he definitely prefers the "less is more" theory when it comes to cards in which he is the recipient.  I hope you like it!

With no disrespect to the other entries, this is one of my favorite cards in this hop. Your less-is-more approach to this card allows all of the elements to be appreciated and to shine. Red and white create a magic all their own.
