Simon Says Stamp February 2014 Card Kit Card :-)

Please scroll down to see my cards for the PTW :-)

HAVE YOU SEEN  the new February 2014 Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp ?? The big reveal is TODAY !! and it is FABULOUS !! Well Done Kristina and the gang :-)

My kit arrived yesterday so I haven't had much time to play yet,, but I did manage one yesterday evening :-) 

I didn't want to use anything that wasn't in the kit, BUT, it did need a tag on the bouquet so I cheated a bit. Though in all fairness a tag is easy to add yourself even if you don't have a stamp or punch or whatever ,, so it's only a little cheat :-)

I chopped off 1.25cm from the edge and adhered a strip of the paper along the inside edge. This gives a nice effect I think, especially with the sentiment overhanging :-)

I thought this could be a general purpose card and think it would be good for someone in need of a cheer up :-)

I stamped the foliage background and then stamped the flowers onto another piece of the designer paper,cut them out and shaped them. I used some of the new Mustard Seed Distress Glitter for the pollen ,, fab eh ! :-)

 There is (or soon will be) a gallery for all of the cards made using this kit ( there are galleries for all of the kits), so if you have the kits please link your creations so we can pop by to see yours too :-)
