So I stamped the leaf image onto red cardstock backed with white and black. Added the border and that wonderful sentiment. Popped both panels to give some depth and added some black crinkled ribbon (Etsy) and Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. Used Jody Morrow's foam dots and sticky tape dots (blog-confessions of a ribbon addict--just google).
Dawn Woleslagle is the MUSE for this month. Check out this card.... CAS and ELEGANT and a fantastic layout!!
I am so blessed to be back in more of a normal routine -work not too out of control right now, family life stable at the moment- you never know what will "hit" you- need to let everyone in your family know that you love them all the time!! Even when I wanted to strangle my kids (now don't even try to tell me you have never wanted to, LOL)-- it was " I love you and always will but, I don't like what you are doing/the choices you're making. I have had 2 close family deaths and one serious family illness in the past two months- it can "knock the wind out of you" but, I was blessed to have family that helped me through!! Okay... honestly didn't mean to dampen things- just reflecting a little, I guess!!
If you stop by, I love to hear from you and appreciate your comments... sorry I got carried away!!
