Life


Yesterday morning I woke up thinking oops, a friend at work wanted me to make her a card to give a friend of hers. She wanted it like a shadow box, so I jumped in and in less than 20 minutes came up with this one. I used Spellbinders Classic Ovals, Kassie's Brocade embossing folder,the sentiment is from Great Impressions, punches are Vintage Floral from Martha Stewart, flowers are Wild Orchid except the smaller ones and I already had those made, I did punch out a few fern leaves. The card stock is from Stampin Up, Ivory, Kraft and Soft Suede. I like how it turned out, oh yeah, I used 3 D dots to give it that Shadow box effect. When I took it to her she said she liked it............hope so. That's it for now, yall have a Blessed day and remember to smile, God loves ya!!!

Twenty minutes? I would have had to walk away 20x to come up with this beauty. Your mind works in layers, I think. BTW, shut the door if tonights snow is coming from your direction.
