You're the Best!

I came down to my stamp room today with no idea what I wanted to create...ugh. I'm never a happy camper when that happens, but I decided to go through my google reader and maybe I'd be inspired.
Pin It

When I came across Sketch 149 on the Card Patterns Sketch blog I knew it was for me. The weird thing is though, I rarely ever make shaped cards, so I have no idea why this one spoke to me, but it did, and this card is the result.

A simple card with a simple sentiment and a pretty flower embellishment. The sentiment is from More Essential Sentiments from My Favorite Things. I cut the double scallop border die-namic from pink card stock then stitched it onto the patterned paper (Echo Park Victoria Gardens) and the white base. The flower was created using the prima donna petals die-namics and I used the fancy flourish die-namic for the green accent. A little bling and this one was done!

Here are the die-namics I used:

Thanks for stopping by!
