Best Wishes

I've been eyeballing Marlene's card for awhile now. 
I'm really into stamping but I often overlook the potential for featuring die cuts.

I finally got a wild hair and decided to give it a try.
I used papers from Carolina Breeze by Teresa Collins. This collection is quickly becoming a favorite! I love the trendy grey and yellow. The little sentiment is from Hot Off the Press. I went with straight stitching instead of zigzag. I definitely need a new white pen!

The die cut I used is from Walk In My Garden. This is definitely a cart that I rarely use so it was a great opportunity to show some love. I also appreciated the Cuttlebug embossing.

I always line the inside of my cards. I was feeling extra froggy and added a decorative corner.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Fabulous job, Alissa. That was one of my very first carts. Now I have a bazilion and don't use them! What's up with that?
