Misty Moonlight ~ Ornate Thanks

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Today’s card is so very feminine and uses one of my favorite color combinations, Blue and Vanilla, if you were to look in my wardrobe you would see a lot of this combination!

I have used the Ornate Thanks Bundle, the Ornate Thanks Stamp set has 3 big, bold greetings then a whole bunch of additional, supporting greetings in a beautiful script.  Then additional decoration using the Ornate Borders Dies, while these are available separately you can get 10% off if you buy the bundle!  Great Deal  🙂
