Sweet 'n Sassy Release Celebration - The Future

Welcome to day two of the Sweet 'n Sassy Release Week Celebration...aren't you having a blast so far!  I know I am...I just adore this month's release!  Today's stamp set is called The Future and it includes a number of beautiful and encouraging sentiments.  This set is perfect for cards that tell loved ones you're thinking about them and to remind them that God is in control...(Amen for that!)

To create my card, I first used a bookmark die to cut out a piece of cardstock for the sentiment.  I then stamped one of the swirls from the Leafy Flourish stamp set on the bookmark, which I did need to trim to fit onto the card.  The sentiment is layered over the swirl (have I told you how much I love swirls?).  Then I got to decorating...pretty paper, rhinestone swirls, flowers, more die cuts and two sweet text butterflies, cut using the new Monarchs die set (more on that new product in a few days!)

I really like your use of the bookmark die with the sentiment, gives it a unique tag shape and with the soft flourish stamp under the sentiment, it looks beautiful! Cool paper, color, shapes & bling combo!

Your card is just lovely! I couldn't agree more that this stamp set is truly special. My Dad passed away a few months ago. I can see these sentiments on cards for my Mom and other family members who miss him as much as I do.
