My Craft Spot Stamp Release Party - Day Three

Hello from Como, Italy!  My husband and I are still working our way around Europe so all of my posts are pre-scheduled this week.  It's our 20th wedding anniversary today!!  I'm so blessed to be loved by such an amazingly wonderful man and I thank God for our happy, love-filled marriage.

It's Day Three of the My Craft Spot stamp release party!  I have to say that today's set is something for which I have been looking for AGES!  I am so very thankful that Kimberly is releasing this set - and she's done such a lovely, lovely job with it!  This set is something I requested, so I feel especially touched that Kimberly has put it together.  You'll see its full beauty revealed on Saturday!

The back of this card is 4.25 x 5.5 and the front is 4.25 x 4.25 - plus a bit extra with the blue border, punched with a Stampin' Up punch.  The sentiment mats are from a Spellbinders Nestabilities set and the flowers are a combination of cuts from Flower Shoppe and some punches.  

I added a bow behind the flowers, using Vanilla Bean crinkle ribbon from My Craft Spot.  In the centre of each flower, I added a drop of Liquid Pearls.

The inside of the card was stamped with another sentiment from today's elegant new release.  The little swirl is from My Craft Spot's Happily Ever After set (which was released earlier this year).

It's hard to believe that we are halfway through this fun week - but there is still more to come!  Be sure to head to My Craft Spot to see all the other gorgeous projects created by the rest of the design team - and to leave a comment for Kimberly for your chance to win today's prize, the Birthday Wishes stamp set.  And don't forget about Saturday's My Craft Spot blog hop - where EACH design team member will be giving away a stamp set (courtesy of Kimberly)!!  

I'll see you tomorrow with a peek at another new stamp set!
