The leaves and flourish… shhhhhhhSecret telling smile

I just LOVE this die set!

I used Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8, Resplendent Rectangles, Framed Tags I, and Radiant Rectangles

Love Scriptures, Our Daily Bread designs

I used Love Scriptures on ODBD Bookmark Dies, along with the border from Cathedral Window and Border and those leaves and flourish again! The paper is Authentique Cherish.

Dawn these two examples of fine art are just beautiful. The variety in style and design is wonderful. This month's release is amazing and in a day and age where marriages are under attack, it is great to know that there are companies out there who support and encourage this special event in the lives of those who go on this journey of marriage. Your cards would make awesome gifts in themselves for someone's wedding. Bye the way your little slip about the leaves was a great one because they are just totally stunning leaves and I want them as well. Your work is so inspiring and thanks for providing it again today. Blessings
