Echo's of Kindness Card

I have told you many times that I stamp among some talented gals! Here is a card that Sandi made using the Stampin' Up! "Echo's of Kindness" set. It's a set that I REALLY like but have not used much at all. Hmmm, sounds like most of my sets! SO sad.

This card opens at the right but the layout is such that it could open from the bottom or even from the right side.

I LOVE the black card base and layers. That's SO me when I make cards, especially ones for the SplitCoastChallenge every Wednesday.

Personally I would not have tackled a card like this. Way too much cutting close to the flower for me. Sandi did such a fabulous job keeping it even all around the flower. We won't talk about what it would look like had I cut around the flower. Do you think that is why she didn't ask me to cut her flower out? LOL

This card has such a spring look to it. It's got a warm happy feeling associated with it as well.

The "Scallop Trim" corner punch was used on the flower layer and the "Scallop Trim" edge punch was used on the long center strip. That is a punch I just love using but am SO particular when it comes to getting both sides exactly perfect. And I'm not all that great at that either. It's evident by the lack of cards on my blog with it on them!!! I know, I should use it more and work with it and soon they will be perfect! Practice makes perfect, right? Hope so!!!

This is also a very versatile card. It would work for a Birthday, Get Well, Thinking of You and Mother's Day. Anyone would be happy to receive a card like this. Great job on it Sandi and thank you for letting me share it with everyone!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Nice job Sandi, I love the scallop corners. It is a very elegant looking card.
