My card features three mini border patterns from a new stamp set called Fascinators. There are so many elements in this set, making the possibilities endless. This is a must-have for all Paper Smooches lovers because it will go with any of Kim's stamp sets and I really do mean that! I used the three patterns to anchor two sentiments in the sweet spot. The sentiments are from another new release called Many Thanks. You will want that set, too. Just be prepared to spend on August 1st. ;) I loved how the 'square' looked on its own but I couldn't help embellish it with sequins. 


Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check back here on Saturday to see if you are the lucky winner of the Fascinators stamp set!
