winter thank you.





So many toys, not enough time!

I haven't played with my Avery Elle stamps in awhile.  I did make a bunch using the Winter Wreath for Christmas cards but actually haven't taken a pic of them!


All the paper is Studio Calico Wonderland.  I used the 'top band' of paper, the green border, in my favor when designing this card.  

I did a close up so that you can see that the wreath is embossed in gold:


I love gold embossing, don't you?

I'm pretty much Christmas card'ed out, how about you?  This could easily be used as a winter thank you.

I was inspired by the latest 



I used Avery Elle's



Have a super Friday!
