Is this some fabulousness (of course it's a word!) or what!? Have you just loved the à la Modes previews? Oh, yeah! Well, hold on to your seats, 'cuz here comes Well Read WTG :)

What did I tell you? Don't you love this? I'm about to use up most of my Thrift Shop paper but I managed to find enough for this card--it's perfect for this set's theme, doncha think? :) I'm using the Die-namics Open Scallop Border Die on the front and the Framed Greetings die on the inside. Did I mention how much I love ALL of the Die-namic dies? OK, but I especially love the Framed Greetings die. A lot. Other MFT products I used on this card are: Whip Cream and Black Licorice card stock, the Lace Ribbon Collection (temporarily out of stock), and the Summer Button Collection.

Thanks for stopping by! Next stop is the fabulous Melody! Let's go see what goodness she has up her sleeve, shall we? I'm right behind you!
