Sweet 'n Sassy Round-Up

This is my first Round-up card for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Once a month, each of the DT chooses a set to show-case with a special card or project. I chose one of the sentiments from the "A True Friend " set. This set is filled with the most lovely sentiments and is one of my favorites. To be honest, it hasn't been put away since I received it! I just keep using it! There are so many sentiments and they are perfect for the cards that we send (or should send) to those precious people in our lives.

I decided to do a triangle-fold card. It is very simple to do but adds that little something extra to your card. For my card base, I used Purely Pomegranate and paired it with Basic Grey's "Eva". They are a wonderful match. I used my Nestabilities Circle & Scallop set to create a many layered circle using pink, black, white and grey cardstock . The black scallop is popped up to add a little more interest. The sweet shaped adhesive gems are by K&Co and the flourishes were made with a punch. The final touch is a sheer black ribbon bow-tie. I really like the elegance it gives to the card! Inside the card you can add an image, photo, or another sentiment!

This picture gives you an idea of the different aspects of the card.

Here you can see the inside.

I hope you like my first round-up! It was a little nerve wracking...I mean have you seen how talented the rest of the DT is? Yikes! Talk about pressure! Check out the work of my SNSS sisters. Their creations will knock your wee cotton socks off!
