Finally!

Finally we are having a bit of a warmer weather spell and finally, a card I really like!

Last month I earned a package of Reece Soar with it Collection from The Angel Company, so I was eager to play with it. Typically my cards are just one or two simple layers, but I took the time to study how others use multi layers and matting to come up with this card. I'm really thrilled with the results!

I used the script from Vintage Santa (minus the snowflake side) to make the strip of green background paper and the flower was a craft store find (99 cents for a "stalk") and the felt bird was from Big Lots...I used some walnut ink to darken it just a bit.



Card Materials: all stamps and papers from The Angel Company
Stamps: Savvy Sayings, Vintage Santa
Accessories: Reece Soar with it Collection and cardstock, ribbon from Pink Hedgehog, MS border punch, felt bird Big Lots, fake flower, Palette ink

Did you know that each Soar with it Collection has one full sheet of tags? Here is one of them and the new set, Savvy Sayings fit inside perfectly! I hope you aren't getting tired of all of these sneak peeks!

My pre-order of Serenditpity magalogues arrives today! If you already contacted me for your copy, I'll be mailing them out tomorrow! Don't miss out on my "I want it all" catalogue special where you get all 3 issues for just $10! That's in the US but I do ship out of the country so be sure to contact me for your special price...

Love the colors and love that even with the layers it is still a "simple" card - that is a good thing in my mind!
Hope you and the other 10 for 10 gals are having fun and doing well!
