Dreamy Willow



Hi everyone, and thanks SO MUCH for all the wonderful birthday wishes yesterday! I just got this Dreamy Willow stamp from Stamper's Dream and inked her right up along with the new General Sayings set. Have you seen this set of sentiments? They cover so many card themes, and they're pretty fonts to boot!

The blue mat behind Willow and the sentiment tag are up on foam tape. Willow was stamped in black craft ink and heat embossed with clear EP. The bows were tied with my Bow Easy. Here's the inside:



Hope you're having an AWESOME holiday weekend!
