For Your Kindness


I've mentioned before that I don't normally use much patterned paper.   Well, if you could see my desk right now you would know why!  I like to try each pattern and combination to see what looks the best.  And, I really can't see it unless each piece is cut to size.  I think I tried every sheet in this pack of dsp.  Then I needed to die cut butterflies and banners in every color to see which combination looked best.  For clean & simple stamping, it's not very clean or simple ;) 

Maybe now I should go upstairs and try to make another card with all of those scraps.

Thanks to Retro Sketches  for the inspiration!
