You're So Sweet

Hi Everyone! I'm back from a little blog break and am excited to share more cards with you. I've been so inspired by my new and old Papertrey Ink stamps and goodies lately.

Everyday Button Bits
was one of those sets that I fell in love with from the minute it was released. I've used it here and there but I think you'll notice over the next few days that now I'm using it A LOT.
The background of this card has a simple lattice design I created using embroidery floss. To create this look I scored the lines one inch apart, cut small notches where the lines touched the edge, then simply laid down the floss and taped it on back.

I stamped Text Style on the white mat, ink distressed the edges and added some Ric Rac using my new favorite die cut at the bottom.

Thanks for stopping by! Your comments are appreciated as always!
