Quick and sweet MME card

This is the first card I've made for the month with the gorgeous new MME papers.  It is a quick but sweet card inspired by a card that I saw on Pinterest.  It is done in the CAS style (clean and simple) which is often a challenge for me because it means minimal layering and minimal embellishing, but I love the fresh and clean look of it. 

The polka dot paper is from MME's All Is Bright collection.  The flower was done with wool-blend felt and Spellbinders dies.  The adorable little sentiment is from our own Lisa Hetrick's Avocado Arts set called Style Borders & Sentiments.  I love love love this set because it has tiny words (which you often need) for every occasion, plus great borders that can also be used as background builders.  I made a gorgeous quatrefoil background (current pattern obsession of mine) last night by repeatedly stamping one of the borders and because her stamps are clear you can do perfect placement.  The little tag that the words are on was cut using a Cuttlebug die.

Remember to stop by the Design Team area of the store not only to pick up the great product that we are featuring each month, but also to see our creations in person!

Take care,
