Best in You

Hi everyone!
Happy Saturday!

I have a couple cards to share with you today using one of my favorite sentiment stamps from Catherine's Freshly Picked release.  I definitely want to live this way and teach my children the same.  Isn't it a great sentiment to live by?!

I wanted the sentiment to take center stage, so I used my MISTI.  I then took the layering flowers from the set to stamp around the sentiment.  Aren't those flowers fun?  There are three layers, but you can just stamp two if you like. ( I did just two layers on the pink flowers below)   I am a bit obsessed with gray leaves lately.  I used the new Black Jack ink to stamp off to get the lightest color and then full on Black Jack for the second layer.  I added some black and white twine to finish off this one layer card.

This card is very similar, but I took the largest Merry Labels die to cut from my top layer.  I then added some foam tape to pop it up in the negative space.  I LOVE that this sentiment fits perfectly in the Merry Labels die!!!!

Before you go I wanted to let you know about a sale over at Ellen Hutson!  She is having a HUGE Christmas in July sale.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
