I started by stamping the sentiment in Brilliance Graphite Black ink on some Miss Caroline Howdy Doody 6x6 papers from My Mind's Eye and then cut it out using an Oval STAX Die-namics die. I added the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-namics along the seam of papers and then sewed over it. The bow at the top is made with some more patterned paper and the new Dainty Bows Die-namics and the layout is Jen Shults' DS74.
