Wow it has been a really long time since I used the Simply Said stamp set! It used to be a favorite of mine too! I still love it - just don't use it. I used it today because of the Color Challenge at Pals Paper Arts. The colors reminded me of a card I made eons years ago and it was one of my favorite workshop make and takes. This one is similar but way more involved than my card of long ago.
The sketch is from Stampin Addicts website.
And I know there are some of you saying "That's nice, but what is the sneak peak?!" Well the sneak peak my friends happens to be that strip of rick rack! No it isn't ribbon, it is cardstock cut with the new Bigz XL die called Tasteful Trim. It is from the Holiday Mini and I can see all kinds of possibilities for the different borders it cuts!
Close up of the holes punched in the designer paper.And to add some special detail I added a pearl to each flower and to the saying. Love those things!!
