A Note For You!

The challenge at the Sweet Stampin' Challenge this week is "Anything But Birthday".  This sure is an easy challenge, so I'm looking forward to seeing all the entries!

This digital image is by Whimsy and named Katie. This card was featured on Whimsy's Facebook on April 13, 2013. I used the Whimsy Notables die and sentiment along with the Double Scallop Circle die. I used a crocheted flower behind the pink rose, and the flowers are from my collection. I used two Poppy leaf dies. The pink rhinestone swirl is by Prima and the two stacked laces are from my stash. The die on the bottom of the card is by Magnolia. The jewel in the middle of the bow is by Queen & Co. and the heart charm is from my stash of supplies. The paper is from a local scrapbook store. Phew.

Here's a closer look at Katie.
