JR Week - Note Cards



I'm back with some more cards using my Just a Note set with Decorative 2" Round Borders. Silke and Michelle are also showing JR projects today.

On this first one I paired the MME Life Stories DP with Prism Rose Dark. I love this color Prism CS with this pattern of the Life Stories DP!



Both circles are up on foam tape, the edges are sponged with Rose Red ink, and I added pink Stickles to the stamped butterflies and swirls. The edges of the card are faux stitched with a Soft Suede marker.

The layout on the next one is Weekend Sketch 105.



The small Thinking of You circle is up on foam tape, the edges were again sponged with Rose Red ink, and I dotted the i's with pink Stickles. The colored CS on this one is PTI's Scarlet Jewel.

Very clever with your piercing template idea...I love that!

These are both gorgeous Denise, beautiful papers, and ribbon, and I really like these JR sentiments.

I received a JR last year for Christmas (the basic one) but have not checked into other stamps or inks for it...I really need to!
