The stamp set I used is "Spread the Light" from Our Daily Bread Designs . The background is a Provocraft Leafy Branch embossing folder that I colored in with a Baja Breeze marker before embossing. The bow is tied with the Bow Easy and May Arts Blue Silk ribbon. The sentiment is framed with Spellbinders Ornate Artisan Tags . The card is framed with the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis.
