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!

MIM A La Carte!

For the first MIM of the New Year 2017 A La Carte, Papertrey always gives us a chance to go back and play with a challenge that we were unable to do during the year.
I don't remember doing #276 Kraft & colored pencils with Melissa Phillips!
I pulled out Botanical Blocks III and stamped on kraft then colored with prisma colored pencils.
My card is mounted on a soft stone card that I embossed with the linen impression plate for a subtle background.  The sentiment is from Through the Trees.
Heart Hugs, friends!

  1. Oh I hope this beautiful card is for your stash, and not destined for a loved one, Colleen. Anyway, your coloring is gorgeous. You really got those pencils to shine on the kraft! Hugs!
