For my card I am showcasing Learning to Sail stamp set and Flourished Trim Die.  I also combined with Verve's Cut Above Jotted Heart die and the Mini Bookplate die set. 

I am using this week's Mojo255 Sketch.
I combined some MME Market Street papers from my stash.  It was slim pickings from this pad, though.  Only a couple of sheets left.   I ink distressed a bit, stitched around the panels, added the focal elements, and a coordinating seam binding bow.  I stamped the little start to one of the hearts and added some glitter for a touch of sparkle.  The  Flourished Trim Die sits on both sides of the seam binding for an added detail.  Of course,  it appears that I covered most of it up with my focal hearts and sentiment.  Speaking of sentiment, I  am just loving these new Mini Label dies.  I just keep reaching for any of the new three sets. LOVE THEM!

  1. Pretty in pink!

    How wonderful is that sentiment?! My brain is whirring thinking of all the occasions that it could be used for - loads!

    This card is so pretty, the flourish trim makes a perfect border either side of the ribbon :)

    I really am starting to believe that I NEED all these new stamps and dies in my life, else my crafting will be sub-standard!
