Wow, with the chaos of the holidays finally behind me, I discovered some new found time! Given that, I knew I really wanted to join in the FS challenge for our illustrious IC Challenge Moderator, Smilyn Stef.
Stef, however belatedly my congratulations comes, I was elated you were selected to be FS151!
I had much difficultly decided on which card to case. Each and every one of your cards is a delight in and of itself. After careful consideration, I finally decided on this one with a few changes:
1. changed the circles to a rectangle
2. changed the them
3. added mesh and a divoga clip
Hope you had a wonderful day and week as our FSer, Stef. You've arrived and rightfully so!
Thanks Stamp Muse for the Divoga clip!

I love the vellum sentiment and what it says is so true. Your Graphic 45 paper is great. Although, I don't see a beautiful bow on this one, I do love the
use of the mesh...so perfect for this theme, as is the pretty clip from M. Wonderful card to honor SmilyStef. I am sure she is very pleased.

First time I saw this sentiment only the first half was on the front of the card and I didn't want to make the card (it was at a workshop) until I saw the rest of it! Love that sentiment now! Cute card!!! What a great idea to use sale ads as a background for a priceless friendship card!!
Wow another card from Anne in the gallery today. (I knew it was my lucky day to take time and peek in the gallery.) I have no idea what a Divoga clip is.....but yours looks nice. Love how you used the papers together to accent your sentiment. Keep stamping!!! :)

Oh, what an extraordinary card totally out of that usual flower thing (which I love, too...)!!! Okay, YOUR cards are mostly extraordinary, so this might be the wrong adjective to describe it - blame it on my poor English!!!! Anyway, I love the subtle message you express by choosing this advertisement paper as a perfect background for the vellum sentiment which is oh so true!
