    Great card, stamp set and great (video) tutorial. I need to get my hands on that adhesive you are using. I am hopeless when it gets gluing stuff to the center at first try and then I have to reposition them.Annoying, especially since my sticky tape isn’t so “forgiving”. :S
    I like how your card turned out. Those pearls give it a pretty and elegant look and I like those feather dies cuts with this stamp you used too. Fab work! xx

    Melissa, your card is so elegant and lovely! Those feathers and pearls are the perfect accompaniment to your stamp set. What a thoughtful and beautiful card.

    I don’t have any awareness stamps and sometimes those would be just the right thing for a card. I really like how your set has several sizes of the ribbons and so many wonderful one-word sentiments to choose from….as well as that encouraging sentiment about strength! I would love to give this stamp set a home in my craft room. Thank you for the chance!!!

    Sorry it has been so long since I have dropped in. Life happens, right? 🙂 I am, of course, a subscriber to your blog in various venues and now I am a new subscriber to your YouTube channel, too! Yay!!! Have a lovely week!!
