Paper Sweeties April Release Day!!!

Hi there Friends!

Today is the day to purchase those SWEET new
April stamps from Paper Sweeties!!!  I chose the
lovely label and thankful sentiment from the
(Beautiful!) stamp set for the above card!  The
heart at the bottom of the card was used from the
stamp set, (Snow Friends)I am very thankful to
be able to create with these wonderful line of
stamps! Thank you, Debbie!!!

My last two cards were more of a CAS design.
But, today I went back to my favorite shabby chic style. 
I started with a cream card base.  Lovely SEI
and MME papers were used.  The edging of the
label stamp was colored softly with a SU colored
pencil.  A punched circle and doily was placed
behind the label.  A scalloped circle die from MFT
along with seam binding and flower for the center
of the card.  Pearls were added for the final touch.

I have one more project to share with you tomorrow.
In the meantime, have fun shopping and check out
