I am so happy to have you stop by...  I hope you will join us all week as we present these wonderful new sets from Mark's Finest Paper a HRC.  Today we are showcasing this gorgeous set
 "Marsh Birds".
I did my card a little out of my comfort zone...  I haven't been doing  much with flowers and frills lately but this set just screamed for some of that...
I embossed the white card stock, trimmed the side with a small scallop punch, embossed the side edge with a matching embossing folder.  Stamped the images, cut them out and framed them in pink.  I used some small silk green ribbon down the edge and curled the ends.  I added some cutout flowers, roses, and some silk leaves.  I decided to stamp the sentiment and break them  up into three words.
I hope you are having fun so far!!!  Hop on down the list and see all the beautiful work from my team members.
Come on back tomorrow,
