Thinking of you

Hi all - Playing in this week Freshly Made Sketch #534, which I ended up turning on it's side. 


The postage stamps are washi tape from 49th and Market. I had them on the card base by themselves and they got lost. So I decided to cut it out and layer it with a gold cardstock so they would pop out more. Carta bella leaf stem is cut twice and glued together to be a bit longer and covered up the splice with the butterfly. It's an old one from Memory Box.  Sentiment is from Altenew.

Thanks for stopping by.  




Thinking of you today

Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge over at Less Is More.  

 



Sentiment is from Pretty Pink Posh. I embossed the bottom half of the tag with a daisy embossing folder and colored it with ink.  Dot outline die is from Gina M Designs. 

 

Here is the cue card.
