A Warm Breeze

     Isn't this a sweet image.  Tammy has outdone herself again with this weeks new releases.  There's a little bit of everything in there from princesses to owls.  :-)  Make sure you check out the blog or her store to see whats new.
     For this card I've used some papers from My Mind's Eye's Stella Rose Mabel collection.  I don't know what I am going to do when I run out of these papers.  LOL  There's lots of layering as you can see and a fun little grouping of eyelets with some Bakers Twine laced through them.  This week also starts a new challenge at ADFD and we want to see twine on your projects.  I gave clouds another go with the Copics and am fairly happy with the results.
     We'd love to have you come and join us for the challenge so stop in and play along.
