For Someone Special

Popping in again to share a card I made for a very dear friend. I am so glad that quite a few of the cards I've made in 2019 got MAILED this week! 

I worked on this in bits and pieces throughout the holiday season using the beautiful Botanicuts Pine Bough Die. The branches were cut from aqua card stock, and sponged with shades of blue. The pine cones were cut from white, assembled and shaded with colored pencils. I just LOVE the Fit to be Tied die that made the pretty bow cut from deep blue card stock and silver glimmer paper for the topper. The sentiment also comes from The Greetery set called Pine Blossom. There's one more die that's newly acquired by me; the Lawn Fawn double stitched die adds a great embossed detail to the rectangle border. 
Getting back to stamping is happening more slowly than I thought. Lately I'd rather curl up with a good book! Challenges will help. I'm adding this to a new challenge

I hope you have a terrific weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by.
