just A Note

Hello and Happy Monday!  I made this card for a great sketch at Sweet Sunday sketch challenge.  I loved the layout and it was going to work perfectly with my new Anniversary set from PTI called Botanical Silhouettes.  I was shocked when I received it in my latest order.  I didn't think I was going to qualify for it.  I love the sentiments in this set as well as the darling botanical images that you can mix and match.



I just got this new (to me) border punch at my local JoAnne's.  I love it!  It made this simple design pop.  What do you think of the bit of purple I snuck in there?  I had intended to make a card using papers more in the purple range but just didn't have much left after my CR84FN card.  I tell ya, those companies need to make more pretty purple paper!!  Speaking of JoAnnes...if you have one, the entire scrapbooking section is 40% off this week!  Mine is pretty pitifully stocked in the papercrafts department.  Bummer!





Do you have any special plans this week?  I will be working every day this week except Tuesday.  A girl at work went on vacation so I will work 4 days instead of my usual 3. 
Have a wonderful week!

Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI Kraft and Rusitc Cream
Patterned Paper: My Minds Eye Stella and Rose
Stamps: PTI Botanical Silhouettes
Ink: PTI Simply Chartreuse and Plum Pudding, Memento Rich Cocoa
Ribbon: Michales
Twine: PTI
Border Punch: Fiskars Evervesence
Machine Stiching

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather

I love it Heather! The border punch is adorable but what I love most is how you layered your stamping, and the ledger paper holds a special place in my heart. Fabulous card!

This card is so sweet. If you know of someone that needs one of those sets that didn't qualify, let me know. I have one I can give them. I don't want anything for it...just want to pass along to someone who would appreciate it.

Gorgeous card! Yes, the border punch is very unique and a great addition, and I whole-heartedly agree that there isn't enough purple in the patterned paper world at this point in time! Glad to see those anniversary sets are finally being sent out... I'll be stalking the postman, LOL!
