A Better Place

 Love the saying on this stamp - and I am blessed because I have lots of wonderful people in my life that I could send this card!

 The stamp is from Starburst Sayings - and it is one of our great bundles - bundled with the Starburst Framelits.

Like I have said before, I really didn't think I would like all the gold products Stampin' Up! started carrying - well boy, was I WRONG!! I am in love with them all!  My favorites - the Gold Vellum, the Sequin Trim, and the Gold Bakers Twine.  Love. It.

Here's how I put this card together -

* Whisper White cardstock base - cut 4 1/2 x 11
* Next layer is a smaller piece of Whisper White - cut 3 3/4 x 5.  I used the 1/2 inch circle punch to create little half circles, which I wrapped Gold Bakers Twine around several times, and added a Vintage Faceted button and a bow. 
* Next, I stamped a few splotches with the stamp from Gorgeous Grunge using Crisp Canteloupe Ink.
*  My focal point consists of several layers - a piece of Watercolor Wonder Designer Paper -cut to
 2 1/2 x 3 3/4 inches, a square of Gold Vellum 2 1/4 inch square.
* And the final layer is the image from the Starburst Sayings, cut with the Starburst framelits.
* I added a few sequins from the sequin trim die - I attach these with glue dots.
* I didn't add a doily - but I wanted to!! LOL! I guess I can't put them on every card I make!
