There is always . . . .

something for which to be thankful". - Charles Dickens. This is one of the sayings in the September Kit of the Month from Unity. I used the leaves from this set for the front of my card and the border stamp from the July Kit of the Month.

I stamped newsprint paper with the Medallion stamp and layered the border strip, ribbon and punched the green cardstock with the Swirling Lace border. After embossing the medium die I layered it with the decorative label then placed the leaves on top. All of my edges are inked in midnight black.

I stamped the quote in Olive green and have it inside the card.


Thanks for stopping by.
