My card features five stamps from one of the upcoming releases, We Connect. This set is filled with extra large words and ampersands aplenty. It's perfect for creating custom sentiments as focal points. I pulled colours from the tiny flowers on the patterned paper for the words. Then I used a marker to faux stitch around the ampersand and die cut some photo corners to frame the sentiment.


Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check back here on Saturday to see if you are the lucky winner of We Connect!
