On to my creation!

Guess what? I am using some of the elements from a BRAND NEW 1,2,3, Create Kit called 5th Avenue that will be released Monday! Aren't these papers and embellishments beautiful? The polka dot paper is from the current Gabrielle Kit, I just thought it was so pretty with that floral paper, so I had to use that snipet! Other than layering paper and adding embellishments, the signature of my card truly is a sentiment from the Motherly Love set that I stamped on a Spellbinder's Petite Oval shape that I cut out with my Grand Calibur machine. When the die was still on my cut piece of paper, I did sponge on some Spun Sugar Distress Ink and then stamped my sentiment over top. I then matted it on a Spellbinders Labels Twenty that I embossed and then sanded to show off the paper's white core. I think I am addicted to my sanding block!! ;-) Mat this onto the card front using foam tape and.... Voila! Fini!

Remember to hop on over to my fellow Flourishes mates to see what they cooked up for dear ole mom!
