  1. This is SO elegant! LOVE that frame around your sentiment--and are the strips paper or ink or what?! They look fabulous! HUGS and hope you're off to a great New Year! Mynn xx

  2. Gorgeous strips of gold washi tape Jacqueline. A very elegant card!

  3. I'm with Mynn - the stamped frame showcases the sentiment beautifully. I like how you've split the red punched element to use as a mat behind the sentiment. Very nicely done!

  4. Perfectly clean, simple and so elegant! Love the stamped frame and the gold tape!
