Hello Friend....

Hello!

How are you today?

All is well here.

The card I am sharing with you today was made using a sketch from
Paper Sweeties Blog .... their first challenge!!!

 
 and the inspiration photo from Tuesday Trigger ....

Here is what I created...


All cardstock is from Papertrey Ink. The satin ribbon is from Michaels, the crochet trim is from Emma's Paperie. The rustic twine is from The Ribbon Reel. The banner die is also PTI.















 
The sentiment and heart tag stamps are from Paper Sweeties Stamps. I used black ink from Hero Arts. The background leaf and floral stamp is Hero Arts. The black ink I used to stamp that is from Color Box. The tiny rosebuds are Recollections. The leaf dies are from My Favorite Things Stamps. I added glitter glass from Melissa Frances to the edges. I added pins from Maya Road and Joanns. The chipboard frame is Tattered Angels....I am running out of these wonderful frames and believe they no longer manufacture them. Please, Tattered Angels, produce them again!!!  :)
 
Thanks for stopping by!
 
Michelle
