Spellbinders First Adventure - For You

Hello friends, thanks so much for joining me.   Today I am sharing an adorable whimsical card today using one of Spellbinders Little Loves Collection by Licensed Designer Sharyn Sowell.  Sharyn's Dies are always inspiring - the original being hand cut using scissors - an amazing skill in itself.  Sharyn is a very accomplished artist and you can read a little about her HERE.
