For my card I am using One PersonFeel the Sun, and the new Charming Oval die set.  I am using the  Mojo184 Sketch for this card.  I love that many of the sentiments in the One Person stamp set fit the larger charming oval die.  I distressed the oval a bit with ink and crinkling it up a bit.  I added one of the flowers from Feel the Sun over the sentiment. I used the eyelet setter section of my CAD to put little embossed dots at the end of my oval die for an added touch.  



Since it's a new month, that means we've got a new Stamp of the Month to reveal! This month we're featuring Kindred Spirits, an elegant set of images and sentiments based around the timeless fleur de lisKindred Spirits is 40% off during the month of April. How's that for a deal?

Be sure to hop over to Michelle's blog and give her some lovin'.  Michelle is working on the Spellbinder's Design team now.   I wish you all the best, girl!


As always thanks so much for hopping by!  Enjoy the Hop!
