Artful Delight: Thanks for being there.


Wednesday's are my Artful Delight Card kit post days.

Here's a clean and simple card:

I used a vellum belly band (from my stash) to stamp the

for being there 

I used Fresh Ink Birch. 

If you were my vellum adhesive, where would YOU be hiding?  Pretty sure it is with my embossing I used my good 'ole stapler to adhere the vellum.

I really like the look of this 

calm & quiet card.
