Thank You Emily!

I made this card for the Hero Arts 'Mail It' challenge - I will send it on Monday to my sister in Canada.  She was one of my bridesmaids, and also played her violin in the church during my wedding service - she surprised me by playing my favourite piece of music.  It made me cry!!!


Supplies: Stamps - sentiment -Hero Arts, frame - Pink Paislee; Background paper - My Mind's Eye, polka paper - Pebbles Inc; Ribbon - gift from Shanna Vineyard!; machine stitching; kraft paper.

The card is based on one by Dawn McVey - she is so talented and her 'Feel Better Friend' card HERE makes me all goosebumpy! 

Hope everyone is having a good day - last chance to enter my giveaway today, I will draw the winner on Sunday.

Beautiful card! I love the playfulness of the polka dots with the elegance of the swirls. What a fun and unexpected combo that works wonderfully together.
