A {Retro and Week Late} SYFTT

When I saw last week's SFYTT, I was totally floored by Jodi's card, over at Stamping a Latte. I loved how she used the kraft as a base she could stamp a sentiment on. So inspired as I was, I decided to try it to.

I stamped the sentiment from my PTI Daily Designs Sentiment set on kraft cardstock, then ran it through my c-bug w/ the swiss dots embossing folder. Flipping through my stamps, I decided to bring out the original Grace (or Hope, but we think she's Grace) from the TGF Hope & Grace set. I colored her w/ copics and added some clear spica glitter to parts of her headband, bow and shoes, but it didnt really come out in this picture.. Next I mounted the oval image on a scalloped oval that I also ran through my c-bug.

I think this might be the first card I posted using my PTI medium scallop borders. I die cut it w/ some felt I picked up at my LSS. Then I used this uber pretty dp paper I also got from another LSS. Its got such pretty cheery flowers, too bad you cant really see it. And of course I finished of the card w/ a bit of raspberry fizz ribbon (to which I'm running low on so I'm extra stingy w/) and a swiss dotted kraft/felt button flower.
