Well I think since we can have Christmas in July there's nothing wrong with Easter in December! LOL. I got my small preorder from the new occasions mini yesterday and I literally squealed in delight when I saw the new punches and the clear mount stamps. I am in LOVE with the clear mount, I didn't think I would be but I ordered one anyway and I think I'll be going clear mount. And the best part? It's cheaper!! Saving money means more stamp sets... only a woman could rationalize it like that.
This card is made using one of the new stamp sets, called Abundant Hope, beautiful set. Plus, you might notice the new border punch!! Wow I am so excited about this punch, and it comes with a matching corner punch so the possibilities are huge. You can expect to see a lot more cards from me using this punch, lol.
I also used some designer paper that had been on Stampin' Up's clearance rack, unfortunately it's all sold out now, I knew I should have ordered more. The flowers were stamped on watercolour paper and then painted with my aqua painters.
