Christmas and Birthday




 Hi, just popping in with a quick post today.


 When I was at Joyce’s house last week I used her stamp set Chicken Scratch 
When I came home I finished my card with  Scripted Stamp Set both from Papertrey Ink 

The inspiration card is over the top darling by Marika Rahtu



I would love to make a darling card like the one in the inspiration photo!...... This is my take on the photo...... simple . I used Heidi Swapp tape for all the bows, Wplus9 for the gifts. I painted with my Kuretake water colors on wc paper, then cut out the dies when dry. 

Thanks so much for the vista and I hope you have a wonderful day!
