This Too Shall Pass

Hi Stampers!

I've had my eye on the stamp set From My Heart since it came out last year, but for one reason or another, just never got around to ordering it.  Finally remembered to put it on my last splurge, so I've been having fun playing with the various sentiments.

There are really some good ones in this set and not only does one coordinate with the Labels Framelits, they lend themselves well to the Ovals and various punches, or you can even "fussy cut" them.

For today's card, I wanted to use some more of the Afternoon Picnic DSP, but also wanted to do something that might be suitable for a guy or a girl.  I played around with adding some ribbon or not, and ended up using it, but I think that final touch made it just a little too frilly to give to a man.  See what you think:

 
Remember yesterday's post where I mentioned I'd used Bermuda Bay ink?  Same here, as I'd stamped out the images from the set prior to making anything.  Still looks nice, no?  Now, the Summer Afternoon DSP coordinates with, among other colors, Crushed Curry, but I don't have any of that CS yet.  So, I used a little Summer Starfruit instead, and it blended just as well.  Don't ever think you have to have *everything* - check your stash & see what you can come up with in a pinch!
