Petal Parade Life Doesn’t Have to be Perfect

Life Doesn't Have to Be Perfect
This card was made using the Petal Parade stamp set from the Sale-a-Bration brochure.  This stamp set wasn't one of my favorites when the Sale-a-Bration brochure first came out but once I started using it I am finding that I really like it.  That's just a reminder that sometimes you really do have to try some stamp sets out before you fall in love with them.

The new Scallop Tag Topper Punch is so GREAT.  There are so many things to do with it.  You can of course make tags with a cute scallop top — these tags can be added to card fronts or used as bookmarks.  But I LOVED using the punch for this card.  I saw this card style all over Pinterest and had to try it myself.  You will love it too and it is so easy to do.

I love the color combination in this Designer Series Paper — Kaliedascope.  They are so bright and cheery.  We made this card at my Stamp of the Month Class.  We focused on the Perfect Pennant stamp set and the coordinating Banner Framelits.  I love when things coordinate — it makes life so much easier.
