The Project:
For this project I combined the Everyday Blessings stamp set from Skipping Stones Design with Blossom twine from The Twinery.
I love that little houndstooth bird in the Everyday Blessings stamp set. {It's no secret that I love houndstooth!} I stamped the bird in Angel Pink ink and then added the sentiment in Jet Black ink. 

I cut the stamped panel and my card base with dies and then finished it all off with a fun double bow of Blossom twine.

To add a little something to the inside of the card I stamped the falling leaves stamp from the Everyday Blessings stamp set. {I did a little bit of simple masking to get the arrangement you see below. The original, unmodified stamp looks slightly different.}
Thanks for stopping by today!
