Positive Thoughts Stamp Set & Nature's Thoughts Dies from Stampin' Up! Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

Last Tuesday, I created a Stampin’ Pretty Poll asking which limited release Stampin’ Up! coordination product (learn more here) I should use on my next creation.  With exactly 750 votes cast, Nature’s Thoughts Dies snagged the win with 180 of those votes.  The Birthday Dies were close behind with 175. Today’s card showcases the winner and pairs it with the coordinating Positive Thoughts Stamp Set!

NOTE:  THE POLL IS NOW CLOSED
