Just makes you smile! I matted all the cards with the Perfect Layers Tools… link over in the sidebar.

On the inside of both of these cards with balloons, I stamped the Printworks sentiment E2628 E.E. Cummings – it says “and up with joy and up with laughing”.

You can find this woodgrain cardstock at CutCardstock.com HERE.  They have it in three colors, this dark brown, kraft and white.  Their shipping is FAST!  I just ordered metallic gold and silver on Friday and there is a box on my front porch and I think it’s from them!  YAY!

Stitched Rectangles are cut with the Lawn Fawn sets HERE and HERE.

The next card is the Memory Box happy die from the Open Studio set HERE on a watercolor background I painted with Peerless Watercolors HERE.  The little birthday sentiment is from a poppystamps clear stamp set HERE.  I put water on the watercolor paper first, then painted in the colors. The panel is cut with the Memory Box Cross Stitched Frame die set HERE.
