Awesome card. Love you color choices. TFS

Heather said...

Great card! I really like the stamped border (I've never noticed that set before, I'll have to check it out) and I'm always looking for a color to go with ocean tides; I think purple is a perfect match. I'll have to try it.

Brett said...

I love how you used a lot of twine! I always just wrap a card three times and call it done, but I will for sure try this next time!
