BIT BIN TREASURES***






Hi there!!! I found again some papers in my bit bin... My Bit Bin is HUGE!!!!!

I used some kraft cardstock for the base of the card as well as the piece that I used a Martha Steward punch on.

The rosette was made by scoring a piece of designer paper every 1/4" and then accordian folding it, gluing it together and then pushing it out. I used a punched out circle about 3/4" on both sides of the middle of the rosette to hold it together and then added a big gemstone in green.

The sentiment is from PTI***

Have a great day everyone and thanks so much for stopping in***

Pretty card Janine. Looks like you have been very busy with your family business. How exciting for you and all. Will definitely check out your son's blog as you know I enjoy your recipes and I figure the apple can't fall too far from the tree.
Thanks for checking me out too.
Cyber Hugs,

These neutral tones are so elegant, Janine and with the pop of the green gem, it has made for a very rich-looking card.
