  2. Mat 3”x4 1/4” Rosemary &Thyme purple houndstooth paper with white cardstock, leaving 1/8” border. Glue 1/4” from top and 3/8” from the right. Mat long edges of 5”x1 3/8” Rosemary & Thyme black dot paper with black cardstock, leaving 1/8” borders. Glue across card, 1/2” from the bottom. Stamp and white emboss Smart & Sassy Sayings “You’re Not Old…” on 2”x3 1/4” and mat with black cardstock, leaving 1/8” borders. Place Purple Jewel Dazzles™ at the corners. Glue 5/8” from top and right edge.
  3. Assemble purple and pink plaid Flowers Papier Tole with foam tape and glue to the left side of the card as shown. Zot™ two metal pins between flowers. Knot Simply Susan’s 5/8” lavender grosgrain ribbon and Zot™ over the pin stems. Stamp the Sassy Sayings butterfly stamp once on white cardstock and once on Rosemary & Thyme purple houndstooth.
