thinking of you...

Hello... have another card to share.  This time for Freshly Made Sketches, Color ThrowdownAEI{heart}U:  diecuts and Less is More:  Anything Goes. (Happy belated birthday, Chrissie!!)  This is my last post for awhile... off on a little vacation with my boys.  We are heading to Birch Bay, Washington for some fun in the sun with my in-laws.  The boys are excited to be spending a whole week hanging out with their cousins!  I'm looking forward to some down time and doing some reading!


Anywhoo... on to my card.  This came together pretty quickly.  Some washi tape, a die cut, some hemp twine, a few enamel dots and I was done.  To add some interest I cut the panel to 3 3/4 x 5" and then rounded one corner.  The corresponding corner of the card base was rounded as well.  The Avery Elle set I used is Petal & Stems, as well as the Petals & Stems die.  I can't seem to stop making projects with that set... absolutely love it!



Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps & Dies:  Avery Elle; Inks:  Stampin Up! Rich Razzleberry & Memento Tuxedo Black; Hemp twine:  Hemptique yellow; Enamel Dots:  My Mind's Eye; Washi Tape:  Stampin Up! & Impress
