The Project:


I started by stamping the image from the Birds & Roses Clear Stamp Set from Sweet & Sassy Stamps on basic white cardstock.

When I was browsing the Sweet & Sassy Stamps store this image just jumped out at me and I knew it would be so fun to color.


I colored it with Copic markers, cut it out, and added it to the front of my card which was wrapped with The Twinery's Maraschino and Cappuccino twine.

The Cappuccino twine from The Twinery is one of my favorites...it works so well as a great neutral accent.



Thanks for stopping by today!
