Follow Your Heart

Hello thank you so much for your visit today.

I'm running kind of late this morning so i will make it short.The other day i have organized some of my papers – it is always kind of a mess, especially with the 6x6 paper packs were all the sheets are getting loose after i have used like half of the pack.

Anyhow.. so i add all those sheets in a clear plastic envelope so they are protected and i find this cute paper from a older Basic Grey line called “Lily Kate”.  The branches reminded me on the ones i have seen on my cute Motivet Eddie stamp and there was my starting point for the card. I did add some flowers to the card but the ribbon – not sure if you can tell on the photo is  heavy felt and i have distressed the edges and sewed kind of crooked :-) so i hop it tones the feminine touch a bit down.


Stamps: Motivet “Eddie with Willow branch
Sentiment: Stampin up
Papers: Basic Grey “Lily Kate”
Embellishments: flat pearls, Stickles and Flowers by Cute Stamps and Cards
Tools: Nestabilities and butterfly punch (Martha Stewart – Monarch small)
Coloring: Copic Sketch

Thank you again for your visit – have a great day.

Hugs Claudia

You're right. The image goes great with the paper. I love how you sewed crooked to match the distressing. Subtle yet effective.
