Be Merry with a GIVEAWAY!

Hi!
Today sees the release of yet another fab STAMPtember collaboration set from Simon Says Stamp - this time, with Clearly Besotted Stamps. The set is called Be Merry, and it's stylish yet traditional. For my card, I simply stamped the banners in Versamark, added gold embossing powder and heat set. After trimming them out, I stitched them to some recycled cardstock and decorated with Hero Arts accents.
