Sending Hugs

I'm so pleased to have Joni from Papell with Love as a new follower. If you are unfamiliar with her work, you must pay her a visit as she has some fabulous cards to share.

I found this patterned paper in a Basic Grey pad and fell in love. I wanted to showcase this piece without having too much detract from it so I added some flowers from Rosie Posie and a sentiment and called it good.  This was also my first time playing with the additions set to Rosie Posie. I really love the dimension that detail gives to the flowers.

I shrunk my card base down just a bit so that I could have the flower hang off the edge but still have the card fit inside a regular A2 envelope.
***Supplies***

Well, it is officially only 1 week until Christmas Eve. Only today and 3 more days of work until break!  I'm so excited to have time off to spend with the family enjoying the Christmas season.
Pin It!

Wow, that's a really neat piece of paper, Alanna. It looks to me like you cut out and put each of those strips onto the background. Very cool. I like the idea to make the base a little smaller to accomodate a focal piece coming off the edge. I will definitely have to remember that. Terrific work, Alanna!
