My Dear

Hello everyone. What a busy week one has been. It is amazing how quickly the holidays pass and how the work load grows at an astronomical rate! I have been hesitant to use my Pion papers, as I love them so much and feel apprehensive that I may do more harm than good with my creations. But I took the plunge and used them to create my card.

My card follows this weeks sketch from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I used papers from Pion Designs, which coordinate beautifully together. I distressed and inked the edges of most of my layers. Here are some close ups...


Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps Vintage Lables 18 and Cameo To Go

Ink: Distress Ink Old Paper and Stampin' Up! Soft Suede

Paper: Pion Designs Studio of Memories and Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla cardstock

Other: Spellbinders Nestabilities labels 18, Martha Stewart doily lace punch, Nostalgia florals, Hooked on Craft flowers, seam binding. Bow Easy and lace.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
