One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Card Concept #6

I think this card would be "Clean and Layering", it is almost a one layer card, I just added a bit of black to help it pop and then mounted it onto an aqua mist card.  First I stamped my gifts and bows, then I used two different cuttlebug embossing folders to do the top and bottom of the card; using my scoring board, I made two lines at the top and bottom of the embossed image; tied a twine around it and stamped "Make a wish"...  What a fun challenge this week at Card Concept .  I hope you will take the time to join in and make a birthday card!
Happy Birthday and big dot embossing folders
stamps:  PTI Make a Wish
ink: simply chartreuse, aqua mist, melon berry
twinery twine
paper: PTI white, aqua mist, black
Off to Spokane for a three day Volleyball tournament for my two granddaughters!
And this weekend is the beginning of the Spring Vacation here!
I will be missing until Monday...have a great weekend!
