  Now on to my card and project:






Some of you may have seen my ribbon bookmark in an earlier post as a sneak peak.  This is a matching card and bookmark set using the Corner Butterfly stamp, Butterfly stamp and die and Faith stamp sets released at ODBD today.  The dp on my card is from my scrap bin...feels good to use some of my scraps.  The card is embossed with an Cuttlebug embossing folder. The images are colored with copics.  The images and sentiments are framed with the classic oval and circle spellbinders as well as the scalloped oval and circle spellbinders.


  I hope you enjoyed my creations today!

  From here, hop on over to Sandee's Blog to see what inspiration she
  has for you!

Thanks for stopping by and for your comments.

blessings,
