Gingham Gala DSP with Well Written

My friend Susan is featuring simple cards, including
use of Designer Series Paper (DSP).  That put a bug
in my head, so I had to play with the Gingham Gala
Designer Series Paper on (Occasions) page 35.  This
card sketch is an easy way to use up excess DSP strips,
that may or may not be of equal widths.

I added the coordinating SAB Organdy Ribbon found
on page 7 of the SAB catalog.   I attached bows, but I'm
not positive that I like them.  

The sentiment comes from the Well Written 
Framelits Dies on (Occasions) page 27.  I took the
"birthday" cutout and removed "birth", so make
it a more general greeting.

Bloom by Bloom with Well Written Framelits

This card features the Bloom By Bloom Occasions set
on page 25.  It is a very interesting flower set, that I had
a chance to "borrow" when stamping with my friend Mary.
It gives a 3-d appearance when stamped, because of the
large, loosely formed petals.

The vines, sentiment and butterflies on either side of the 
focal image were created with dies from the 
Well Written Framelits Dies on page 27.  This is an
extensive collection of dies, that coordinates with the
Well Said Cling set (containing 51 stamps!) and
can be purchased as a bundle, with 10% off.

I hope that everyone is safe and warm.  We got 7-8 
inches of snow and the roads are pretty miserable.
Driving tends to feel like sledding on the roadways!
A friend went over my walks and drive 3 times
with her snowblower, but those darn plows are
so good at dumping chunks in my driveway!!
