Burlap, Nature, Stamp & Twine


One Idea = Two Cards

Using the same elements, I created two cards. The only difference is the card base color, the stamp & the greenery on the left side, which is  a different part of a photo that I took while in the Caribbean. If only I could afford to return there, I would be there so fast - It was an amazing trip!



Leaves were punched from vellum, which adds a lot more interest than using plain or patterned cardstock. Have you punched anything from vellum lately? I'd love to see how you used it!



This card was submitted to wonderful challenge blogs - See below for links & details, so you can create your own & join in the fun!
