I used this month's release, All Occasion Sentiments, Antique Label Designs and the custom Antique Labels die made to match the labels by Spellbinders.   Can you say LOVE?  These all occasion sentiments by Michelle Laycock are just perfect so many different needs.

I pulled out one of my older Martha Stewart punches for this card, punched white card stock and layered it over brushed silver.  I heat embossed the sentiment and frame in silver and matted the sentiment panel with a Sbellbinders A2 Polka Dots die.  A little bling and a sheer silver bow finished it off pretty simply, yet I think it has an elegant feel.
