Hey there! I just finished up a set of cards for a friend to give as a gift, so I wanted to share this last card with you. It was inspired by Kazan's sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You this week. I decided to rotate it to better fit the sentiment I wanted to use.

Sorry I have just one photo of this one! I used some gorgeous paper from S.E.I. (both sides). That lovely flourish is by Autumn Leaves. I added some thin strips of Melon Berry cardstock and a skinny chocolate ribbon to frame the focal panel, with zig-zag stitching to add some texture.

I'll be back in a few to show you the packaging I created for this set of cards. Hope to see you back here soon!
