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!

And Yet another MIM

I'm so sorry, I can't help myself!!
I am going to be having some major stamping withdrawals in about 4 days so I am trying to get in as much as I can right now!
Here is another Make it Monday Card  as seen on the video by Melissa.
I had to try the Pretty Peonies with the IP linen/canvas...lovely texture!
I used pink, red and green chalk and then inked up the flowers with Pure Poppy and the leaves with new leaf...some stamped off once.
the frame was die cut with vellum and heat embossed with white filigree and the sentiment is from Bigger Blooms embossed with Ranger Liquid Platinum Powder.
Okay, I will try to move on now to something else!
Thanks again friends for taking a look and leaving a comment, we all do love those little words that tug at our hearts and make us feel so good!!
Heart Hugs,
