A Rescued Birthday Card

I just love this sketch.  It’s this weeks Sketch For You To Try from Jen del Muro over at I{Heart}2Stamp.  This poor card languished on my desk needing something more, alas I rescued it from a  possible trip to the trash can and was able to rework so things so that I could post it.  When you look at the recipe you will notice that more was more in this case.  I guess I was afraid that I might leave some company out on this one he…he..

    I agree with Anita, Becca creations never need rescued.

    I found your site quite by accident, but am glad I did! It is awesome… I loved your ribbon storage idea and am in the process of putting mine on bobbins. It is amazing how many you can get in one of those storage containers!ReplyCancel

    Smart way to use the paper clip. I have many of those and now you have given me a new use. Your design mind must run faster than sound. I am thankful your your creative mind.ReplyCancel

    birthday cards that are personlized are the best in my opinion, they really come from the bottom of the heart of the sender:`~ReplyCancel
