Hugs and Kisses

Hello Blog Friends, I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and finding some 'you' time - maybe even some creating time - that is such a relaxing way to spend a day for me

Today's card is a cleaner style - no inking - not the usual for me.  I have used the A2 Modern Stationery Spellbinders Nestabilities Card Creator for the card base and Authentique™ Paper layer. A strip of embossed offcuts have been added along the left side.  The handmade frame has been backed using some of the Authentique™ Paper and attached over some white twine.  Two of the Feathers Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® have has the ends tucked under the frame.

All Dies have been cut using the the Spellbinders® Grand Calibur® Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.The sentiment is from SRM Stickers.    I have also used  Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L  E-Z  Dots Permanent  Adhesive Runner and 3D Foam Squares on this card

This card is for the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes w/Optional Twist Matching Envelope
