 Be Blessed

I used the pretty floral images from Button Best, Pointed Petals Die Set, Sprightly Sprigs Die Set, and Be Blessed sentiments on my card set!  There are lots of Shine Bright Sequin Mix sequins sprinkled about the card fronts, as well!


The three cards of the set and envelopes were bundled up in a burlap wrap tied off with The Twinery Baker's Twine and embellished with a Sweet Scallop Die.


Your next stop on today's RELEASE DAY HOP is the fabulous Amber!

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
