This card was extremely quick to make, and I was playing around with a new stamp set and punch.  I have realized that I am really enjoying Daffodil Delight, and I am totally not a yellow person.  I am more of a blues and greens gal.  Anyway, I love sentiment stamps too, and when I saw this one in the new Idea Book & Catalog back in July, I just had to have it.  The punch is the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch.  Isn't it fun!?!?  The circle was pierced using my SU! Piercing Tool, Template and Pad.  It's so fun to make circles with it!

I hope that you are having a great day!!  Thank you so much for stopping by and for the kind words that many of you either posted or e-mailed me with after my last post.  The news is to come, shortly.

All items used are SU!

Stamps:  Curly Cute
Ink:  Early Espresso
Paper:  Early Espresso, Regal Rose, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White CS
Accessories:  Daffodil Delight 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, Piercing Tool, Template and Pad, mini glue dots, Clear-Mount Blocks


  1. What a great card -- the piercing around the sentiment is the perfect detail.

  2. Great card - the color is like a bit of sunshine and the piercing is such a nice touch! Gotta case this one, too! TFS!

  3. Fun color combo!! I like the Dotted Scallop border peeking under the ribbon. It looks so different when you only see half of it. What did you use to pierce the perfect circle? What a great accent!

  4. I agree, the piercing around the sentiment really steps this card up, very fine card :)

  5. Loved that pierced circle! Gorgeous card, all the way around!

  6. Why yes, that yellow is just fantastic! What a great card!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate it and thank you for adding a little sunshine to my day.
