I'm so happy for you! (TSOL)

Sneaking this card in at the last second, this month, using the April set from The {Stamps} of Life! I had the layout for this card in my head, and I really wanted the large semi-circle in the background. I must have moved everything else around about a thousand times, before I finally said "WHATEVER. I AM STICKING THIS THING TOGETHER!!!" I think I like it. . . I think. What I know I love is all the piercing. It's my go-to technique lately. Simple, and seems to match everything. It's a nice little easy detail when you just dont know what to add. I used stamps to create the white background pattern. Not a bit of patterned paper on this one! Who needs patterned paper with cute little stamps!? And I'm not sure where this ribbon came from, but I think it added a nice big POP to tie everything together.

Can you believe tomorrow is MAY!? May means the end of my little man's year of preschool (and we won't think about the end of summer bringing KINDERGARTEN!) It also brings a trip to Orlando in a few weeks (Scrapbook Expo at the Gaylord Palms!! The Gaylord in Kissimmee FL is seriously THE most AMAAAZING hotel! We have SUCH fun there every year!) And May also brings NEW stamps from The Stamps of Life! I'll be back tomorrow to share the new goods!

card goodies: cardstock - WorldWin, (dark pink) Bazzill (light pink) CTMH (blue), stamps - TSOL, circle punches - Marvy Uchida,

Laura, I love, love this card. In fact, I think I will have to be trying this one out for myself. I also just love the colors. Thanks for sharing this one.
