Unearthing Merry Stuff

Thanks and kudos to my blog pal Lynn for reminding me of this sentiment stamp! I forgot all about it. I saw her use it on these two cards and knew that was my next inspiration starting point! I really admire her clean cards. She is  a pro at the use of white card stock and has perfected the use of single sequins!

Be Merry

~Layer of white card stock embossed with Paper Studio Wood-grain embossing folder, lightly smudge with inks
