Simson Says Stamp March Card Kit

Hello my blog friends!  Long time no see.  I took a little unexpected break from the blog world, but I'm back!  Since the holidays,  things have been a little chaotic and I haven't had any time to really play in my craft room.  I have had a few card kits that I had not even opened.  I made it my mission to find time to explore this month's card kit. This is the first card I made.

The flowers were stamped from the set that comes with the kit, Flowers on My Mind.  The flowers were stamped in Canary and the stems in Flaxen, both newer colors from CTMH.  The card base is a Colonial White card base from CTMH used horizontally.   The patterned paper is included in the kit.  

The kit also comes with a neat dot border die called Medium Dot Line, from SSS.  I cut the black cardstock with the scalloped border from Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Borders 1.  Then I used the included die to cut the holes out along the strip after adhering it to the card base.  Using some thin yellow ribbon from my stash I wove it through the card and tied a bow.  

This is the first card I have made since Valentine's Day. I think I was going through withdrawals!  I may have to come back and share the VD cards that I had made.  I have a couple of more cards that I made from the kit, too,  I'll be sure to share with you.  

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Thanks for stopping by!
