**************
I'm so excited to be joining the release team this week to show off some of the amazing new release Julee has designed. Today I have a card featuring Button Best and two new die sets! 


Isn't this sentiment fabulous? After a week of Jackson being sick, then falling ill myself, I feel like I've only just been managing to hold it together lately - but I'm proud to say we're all wearing clean clothes and are fed, so I can't be doing too bad!

For my card I stamped the focal sentiment on a sponged panel, and layered it over a doily and circle layer. Behind the circle, I've used the Pennant Trim die, cut from vellum, and contoured it to the circle using tape. The bow uses seam binding from the Summer Sailing collection.


If you love Verve flowers as much as I do, you'll be so excited to hear this set has a matching die set! The Petal Points Die set is fabulous, and works so well with the Sprightly Sprigs Die Set, also new! I coated the sprigs with a silver Wink of Stella pen. 


The flowers were coloured with copics, and I popped up the layers for lots of dimension. How great are those button centers?! I left a white border when I fussy cut them to make them pop a little more.

Here's a peek inside my card...
