Hello , Happy March to you all!

 I used this sweet little bunny from Serendipity Stamps Bunny With Carrot and adhered it to the top of this very new die panel:Swirl Cuts Background Die At first I popped up some of the swirls then decide to make them lay flat. If you don't pop any up it will lay flat. The panel is just like you see it ready to add to your card.

Spring Blooms

Maureen Merritt

Hi there friends! I have a tag inspired by our Guest Designer , Maureen Merritt!
I had so much fun playing with Freehand Florals from Wplus9 Design Studio .I also used my favorite tag from 
Papertrey Ink - Tag Sale: Quilted Die   The fun sentiment is from another wonderful stamp company 
Concord & 9th Say Hello  .

When I stamped the flowers and leaves I used one color on each, with the MISTI it's so easy to 
re-stamp a few times and achieve darker look with the same color.

God bless you!

Trimmed in Gold

Hi there! Hope you all had a nice Saint Valentines Day!
 I created this simply stamped card with just a bit of gold edge.
This heart is one of 4 that comes in a set.

 I got a bit of black ink on the edge of my white square so I decided to add liquid gold pen to the edges 
to cover up my mistake. I liked it enough so I did the same to the patterned paper .
