Pretty Fantastic!

Happy Thursday Fellow Crafters!
Today & Tomorrow I'll be showing you 2 cards I
created using the same paper collection from
Simple Stories - I was making the 1 card that I'll show you today
and I cut out a die sentiment that I though would work on this card
but it didn't look right, so I die cut several more of that same sentiment
in different colors to see what would look best -
But guess what? I didn't think any of them looked good
 with my card! Soooo, instead of throwing away all those
sentiments, I made a 2nd card! LOL

Did any of that make sense to you??? Yeah me neither! LOL
I'll just show ya the card I've got! :)

I just think this card came out so cute! I would've loved to use the 
die sentiment I had in mind, but like I said... it just didn't work for me!
