Here are my card details:

I have used the new set called Flourished Verses.  This is such a great versatile set to have in your arsenal of stamps!  I used the Faux Letterpress technique for my background squares within the large white square.  I inked up the Cuttlebug Preserves folder with Bordering Blue ink and then ran it through my Cuttlebug.  Then I sprayed the inked/embossed paper with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist and when it dried I cut into squares.  I loosely followed the sketch challenge from this week at SCS.  Instead of the oval in the center of the card I chose to use this great Spellbinders birdcage!  Then I added the little banner across the top with embroidery thread and freehand cut triangles for the TLC this week.   The sentiment is cut with a Spellbinders rectangle and the large white square frame was done with two Spellbinders squares.  The bird is part of the same birdcage set.  I added the rhinestones and the more Marshmallow Glimmer Mist to complete the card.

Thank you so much for joining us today! 

From here, hop over to Chris' blog!
She is so extremely talented and I know she will amaze you!
