Ava Flower Patch


Hi everyone! One of my new year's resolutions is to work on finishing the inside of my cards. This is the first card where I've decorated the inside of the card to compliment the outside. Usually I just add a white liner on the inside with a simple sentiment stamped on it.  I'm usually adding the liner at the last minute and scrambling to get my cards in the mail on time so I thought to finish the entire card at once so it is all ready to go. Now all I have to do is sign the card and address the envelope. 


Here is a peak at the inside of the card with the pretty birthday verse I added. The image used on today's card is the Ava Flower Patch digital stamp by Bugaboo Stamps.

Seeing Your Face


Hi everyone! Today's card was inspired by a sketch I recently saw.  I also wanted to try coloring on vanilla cardstock to see how it looks compared to the traditional white cardstock I normally use.
