happy day...

A quick card for the current Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger - A Citrus Celebration.  I wish I could take complete credit for this idea, but I can't... I was inspired by a gift wrapping idea on saw on Marta's Pinterest a few weeks back when I was looking through her Pinterest for inspiration for my One Layer Wednesday card.   When I saw this particular idea I just knew I had to make it into a card.   Finally I made the time today.  First, though,  I spent a little while contemplating exactly how I would approach wrapping the card with the baker's twine.   



I got out my long neglected Hero Arts Heartwinged Butterfly stamp, my bakers twine, a large paperpiercing needle, some cardstock, some ink and went to work.   I love the simplicity of the design and all the open space.   This card falls into the "I absolutely LOVE how it turned out" category. 

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & Lemon Tart; Bakers Twine - Impress; Stamps:  Hero Arts - Heartwinged Butterfly & Thoughtful Messages; Ink:  SU! Kiwi Kiss

Well, I absolutely love how it turned out also. I love how such a simplistic design can turn out with such "WOW" factor.
