Just a Sweet Note

This is my second post of the day. CLICK HERE for Take Two Week {Day 4}.

Today, the following members of the Avocado Arts Pit Crew are inspiring you with more projects made with the March stamp set, Springtime Celebrations:

---> Emily Leiphart <---
Savannah O'Gwynn

I made a quick one-layer card using the dots or stones border by angling it back and forth across the length of the card using three different ink colours. I stamped the sentiment first so I could build the background around it without having to estimate spacing. To finish the card, I rounded the two outer corners and added some glitter to random dots.

This March set is so fabulous and not just for Easter! You can always pick it up any time at the Avocado Arts Store. Of course, the April release Sew Nice has been revealed in full. Isn't it fabulous?! I can't wait to share more creations with you using this set. Thanks for stopping by today!
