Truly Grateful Friend



Did you play along with the fabulous The Craft's Meow birthday celebrations?  There's still time!  I've used Karen's fabulous free digital image to create these two cards.  I've used the inspiration photo below-- flowers/natural colors.  Moxie Fab World is having a scraps challenge for the Practical Solutions Challenge and I couldn't part with any of this fabulous Hero Arts Earth Designer Paper.  I used the Hero Arts sentiment below so I could play along with their March Fabulous Flowers challenge.  Thanks for looking.

Materials: The Craft's Meow digital flower,  Hero Arts digital sentiment, Hero Arts Earth Deigner paper, PTI kraft card stock, vellum, burlap, water color pencil, Martha Stewart score pad, PTI cream card stock
