Embracing Life

Are you all loving this new Ginger Blossom Designer Paper as much as I am? I have never been much of a Groovy Guava or River Rock fan BUT this paper has turned me into one! I LOVE it!

This card is for todays SCS Sketch Challenge. It's a wonderful sketch and I'm sure to use it over and over again!
The base is Groovy Guava. I layered the Ginger Blossom DP on River Rock. I stamped the flower from Embrace Life in Timber Brown Stazon onto Very Vanilla Cardstock. I then coloured the flowers with Groovy Guava and outlined them in Cameo Coral. The ribbon is from May Arts. It matches wonderfully with Groovy Guava!!

Brian had picked up some little candy tins from a LSS in November. I was soooooooooo excited when he showed them to me, but they soon ended up on my shelf of things to be altered.


I'd really like to stop hoarding so many things and use them. Out came this cute little tin again!

I covered it in some Bali Breeze DP that was on my desk. I have a little basket of images that I had stamped and coloured. I dug through it and found another little birdie. The sentiment is from Verve Visual.

Inside the tin I made 5 or 6 little cards. Remember the little ones from awhile back. Think they may have been from a mini. They are like the long notes but way smaller. Anyway, I just embellished them a little with Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, Thanks or You Make Me Smile.
I have a few friends having birthdays soon and this would be a nice gift to give to one of them.
