In Our Thoughts…

LS block

It’s not all about stamping! This simple card was made using a ready made card (actually a Christmas card I saved because I thought it was so pretty!)

Today’s Limited Supply challenge on Splitcoast was to make a card using a store bought card, keeping it clean and simple..CAS.

LSC242 In Our ThoughtsI stamped the dragonfly from With Heartfelt Sympathy by Our Daily Bread designs, added the sentiment from the same set and just embellished it a bit!

The card already had sparkly on the leaves and berries, so I added some stickles to the dragonfly and the punched leaves.

stamps- our daily bread designs ink- adirondack latte paper- prism herbal garden medium other- copics (the dragonfly), stickles, ek success ribbon, martha stewart leaf punch, border punch

Enjoy your Friday!!

Thanks for stopping!!!

Beautiful Dawn! Love your pretty additions and sentiment. I have started saving cards for this very reason! Have a great day!

Wowza! You did a fantastic job matching the look of the recycled card with the stamped sentiment and dragonfly and punched accents. TFS!

Hi Dawn,

You really spruced that store bought card right up! It's like adding some secret ingredients to canned soup.

Great job! Thanks for the ideas
