I like a good surprise. Remember I said good surprise. An example of a good surprise is the flower and leaf die that comes in the Support Ribbon Framelits die set. It is a great flower and different from my other flower dies.
Isn't it a super cute flower and leaf? I paired it with one of the sayings from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set. This sentiment gets used a LOT by me. It fits a lot of situations and you know I am a big fan of the two font look. Are you wondering where I got the Smoky Slate striped paper from? I made it! Yes, it is the Diagonal Stripe Background stamp turned so it is no longer diagonal.
I used the largest circle Stitched Shapes framelits for the Real Red layer and the second to the largest circle (Layering Circles framelits) for the Smoky Slate stripe.
I'm happy with how this card turned out. I think it will brighten up someone's mailbox real soon. I like it so much that I am entering it in the What Will You Stamp Challenge#152, #WWYS152.
