This month the theme is "Handmade Gifts" and I have made a set of 
note cards to give to a graduate I know. 

I used letterpress paper for the writing surface of my note cards. I bought a HUGE pack of these at a grab sale years ago and they have a beautiful torn edge on them- love that! 

I used a new stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle Sparkle Silhouette #621 that was just revealed this weekend. I added some sparkle down the side using 1/8" Tear-ific Tape and Cyclamen Glitter. I finished off by matting on coordinating cardstock.

I used the main image from the set on the envelope front.

I used my Wink of Stella pen to highlight a few areas here and on the card itself.

I have some blog candy to give away!!

What's included:

3 big packs of bling
chipboard pieces
Over 100 Prima Flowers
 American Crafts Ribbon
3 Mixed Media ink pads
5 packs Queen and Co embellishments
10 sheets ephemera
journal cards
Vintage BINGO cards
