Sweet friends, how are you today? Today I’m sharing the card I thought I’d share yesterday but kept getting distracted and made another card instead. Ever have that happen to you? Me too. So many things call my name when I sit down to craft and don’t even let me mention the computer – that’s a whole nother thing. As I move through my room trying to find that flower that I know is over there somewhere, I pick up something I had to buy because I wanted to make a project right then. Right then I start wondering why I never crafted that project then detour off to find out if I still have that set of things. You get the idea, one detour leads to another and it’s often hard to find my way back :-)
I used a nice Quietfire Design sentiment that’s delightfully tall (like the wonderful tall kind of sentiment you’d use for bookmarks, which are on my list) called Have a Heart That Never Hardens.
I created a card base 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″ and used Spellbinders Blooming Collection to create a grid by overlapping two of the square motifs. I stamped my sentiment onto Spellbinders Belly Band Two. To mount it to the card I scored 1/4″ from each end of the belly band and folded it under applying double sided adhesive tape. Once applied by tucking each end under the grid, the band arches a little bit – I liked that look just because it gives a little bit of dimension :-). Once done I added ribbon, and bow and pearls.

Question Parking Lot:
Oh my Becca – what a jewel you have created today. I can’t take my eyes off it. Everything just works so well together. You really have a God given talent – thank you so much for sharing it with us.
This is beautiful Becca!
This is super special and I just love all the Spellbinder dies that came out from the CHA show. I received 5 on Monday and having to make a birthday card for my daughter just was fantastic. Actually finished it last night, except for the inside sentiment. I look so forward to getting your emails for added encouragement and inspiration. Thank you, I am almost ready for Spellbinder’s Anonymous, if you know what I mean. My friends are threatening me with it. LOL
Absolutely blooming goodness! Love it! ????????????????????
You have such exquisite taste, Becca!

God bless you sweet sister!
Absolutely gorgeous! I love the belly band idea. It really does add the perfect dimension. Have missed you.
WHAT A SENTIMENT!!!! How many of us are like that? This is something for all of us to aspire to! Especially, in our world…! BEAUTIFULLY DONE Becca! Your work with this sentiment, just makes it GLOW ALL THE MORE! ;) (You COULD make that center piece a pull-off bookmark…..as a little gift!) ;)
Hi Becca, what a completely stunning, delicious card you have made, the sentiment is really special. A question for you, when you look at a sentiment does it influence how you design your card or is it the other way round? Love the way you present your cards and your photography is lovely and sharp, thank you for sharing x x x
beautiful. Love the way you overlap dies. Have a great day
Wow! Another stunner. I, for one, am not going any where along with all your other fans I suspect! Thanks for sharing and inspiring.
Nothing more to say …than Beautiful!
This has got to stop. I have run out of superlative words to describe your cards, they are beautiful beyond words – just like you.
Thank you for your continued inspiration
Another beautiful card.
Stunning Becca, love that sentiment.
Love & Hugs

WAUW WAUW WAUW I totally agree with Bunny above here, it´s unbeliveable how you can keep on, but this is sooo amazing and beautiful, that I can hardly find words to describe it well enough. I absolutely LOVE it.
Gorgeous card Becca. I don’t know how you manage to think of so many beautiful designs. Just seen some of your new dies on a shopping website and they are stunning. Have a great day. x
Hi Becca. Wow I love this gorgeous card, absolutely stunning. Hugs xx
I feel so spoiled when I see new creations on a daily basis. I love the card, but more so, the comments about your process, Becca. Makes me feel I’m in the company of a kindred spirit – of the highest calibre, I might add!
Love & blessings,

Such a beautiful card. I just got that die also. Edna
Oh my Becca! Ditto what everyone else has said!! Continue to hang out with you? Go on…!! You’d be hard pressed to get rid of me & us. I admit I don’t comment as often as I should but I’m here each and every day! Your beautiful cards and choice of sentiments inspire me daily! Thank you~

Morning Becca, A stunning card with a beautiful sentiment and gorgeous die-cuts.

I love how you have cleverly doubled the dies to create a border around the sentiment as well. I am always fascinated by your use of these gorgeous dies. I have been following you for years now Becca, and I never get tired of your designs using Spellbinder dies. Beautiful paper choice.
