Wheely Easy Card!

Ok...sorry about the bad pun, but this card was easy thanks to my Friendly Words wheel and some embossing powder.  Check it out...

Fast and easy card using Friendly Words wheel.

I designed this card for one of my monthly clubs.  This month we were doing a birthday ensemble that was fairly involved, so I wanted a quick and easy card to end the evening with.  Since we were using wheels on the gift bag and tissue for the birthday set, I figured we may as well keep things "rolling" along and use another wheel here.  Here are the details...
Starting with a 6 x 2 1/2" piece of rich razzleberry cardstock, rub the entire surface with an emboossing buddy and then wheel the Friendly words wheel across the length of the card using a cartridge inked with Versamark.  Sprinkle silver EP over the entire image and then heat with heat tool.  Tie a piece of 5/8" satin ribbon in basic gray ( could also use basic black) around the top of the embossed piece.  Layer  this piece on a 6" x 2 3/4" piece of brushed silver cardstock, then adhere the whole thing to a 6" x 3" basic black card  base. 
For the inside, adhere a 6"x2 3/4" piece of going gray (retired, you could also use brushed silver) cardstock.  Ink the sentiment from the You're A Gem set using rich razzleberry and basic black markers and stamp on a scrap of whisper white cardstock.  Punch it out using the curly label punch.  Trim the sentiment and adhere to another curly label in rich razzleberry.  Add rhinestone and adhere to card using dimensionals. 
It doesn't get any easier than this!
