Sunday, September 25


My birthday comes around every year and not always is it welcome.
This year it seems to be stretching out and I kinda like it!

I needed a thank you for two friends who took my hubby and I out for breakfast and this challenge turned out to be helpful in getting that card done.

I don't always leave "white" space  in my clean and simple cards but i do  leave this case grey.

The base card is grey bazzil type card stock.
I trimmed a piece of white linen car stock and placed the pine leaf from a set of masks by Hampton Art Stamps on top off center.
I sponged that with Distress ink "hickory smoke".
To add the thread I wrapped ano0ther piece of grey card stock and applied it over the leaf piece.
Using the "thanks" die, from a set by Little Yellow Bicycle, I cut it out and glued it over the top of the thread.

Now off to write and address the card!

I love the white linen and grey cardstock combo, really classy. Great for both girls and guys. Like how you wrapped the twine too.
Thanks for sharing with us.

I'm sorry for the really late visit I have been getting back to normal after my holiday!
This is super and I love that subtle, limited colour palette!
Thanks so much
