hello friend

I was very inspired by Nichole Heady's card that she posted today as part of the monthly design team challenge.



I replicated her technique for looping the ribbon and also used the small scallop die and the mat stack 1 die for my focal image. The gorgeous background is a lace stamp from Waltzingmouse Stamps, clear embossed on Hawaiian Shores. I had that piece left over from a different card and wanted to put it to good use!

I am so honored to be chosen by Nichole as a winner for Papertrey Ink's Guest Star Stamper for the month of February in the category of Best Use of Templates! All the entries are beautiful and it really means a lot to me to have been selected!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you're having a great weekend!
Melissa
