Tools: (from my stash)
·      Martha Stewart/EK Success Paper Trimmer & Scoring Board. Fiskars ‘Apron Lace’ Border Punch, Scissors, ruler, craft knife

·       Cut card stock to 6 ½” X 10”

·       Trim two journaling cards from ‘Accent Cuts’ paper.  I used one with a white oval surrounded by pink on pink polka dots, and the one that says ‘Pretty’.  Trim the journaling card that says ‘Pretty’ along the lines to make the decorative label.
