Be Still

Hello my friends and Happy Thursday. Is the weather crazy where you are at? Here, it is super windy!! kinda scary to be honest. I spent part of my day coloring with DD, animals, princesses, flowers, you name it, she has them all, LOL. Of course I wanted to make cards , but this time coloring together was so much fun, she tried to copy my coloring techniques!! she is doing great, of course she is only 5. She always says her daddy doesn't know how to color, that makes me laugh any time I hear that.

Anyway, today I made a card using the sketch from Card Patterns. I started my card with a piece of Kraft (SU), then I cut a piece of Tan Parchment (The Paper Company), stitched and distressed around. I used scraps of Real Red, Kiwi Kiss and Naturals (all SU), this is a good way to use all your little pieces. The stamp is from Verve, the butterfly punch is from MS and the ribbon is from The Paper Studio.

Card Recipe:
Card Stock: Kraft, Real Red, Kiwi Kiss, White (SU), Tan Parchment (The Paper Company).
