thinking of you


This card was inspired by Jennifer's patchwork strips. 
I used Simon Says Stamp Meadow Rue die and will make a card with
the die cut but thought the negative space was useable also.
Hero Arts stamp, Sizzix Texture used on light green cardstock

I'm putting this in the Pattern Play Wrap Up Student Gallery and Emphasize the Negative
Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

Here is the Meadow Rue diecut framed by Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 7 
and mounted on a green pattern paper shaded with Distress Ink Frayed Burlap,
embossed with Tim Holtz Woodgrain folder adhered to Kraft A2 card.
Card was finished off with My Mind's Eye enamel dots.
