You've Been So Sweet


I've surely mentioned before how much I like the newest batch of Spellbinders dies. For today's card, I started out with the Fleur de Lis Doily Accents Shapeabilities set and a scrap of a seed packet pattern from Webster's Pages Spring Market Petite Papers collection. I dressed up the seed packet strip with the Fleur de Lis border, some zigzag stitching, burlap string, and a gathered piece of trim from Webster's Pages Spring Market Trim Card. I didn't want to cover up too much of the pattern, so I chose a small circular sentiment from JustRite's Vintage Floral Labels that fit perfectly within one of the Fleur de Lis Doily Accents die-cuts. To add a little interest, I used Classic Circle Nestabilities dies to cut the "You've Been So Sweet" portion of the sentiment (stamped in black) into a ring, which I then popped up over the same sentiment stamped in sage.

Have a great weekend, friends!

Amy, this is a fabulous card! I love the seed packet strip with the Fleur de Lis Doily Accents from Spellbinders. I ordered them first of April and later found out they were backordered till the end of April. Now that's it's May, I guess I'll be stalking the mailman daily! I love your card but then again, I love all your cards!!
