Cacti

Happy Monday, all! Here is a card that I made using stamp and dies from Paper Smooches.


You can't have too many cactus on one card, right?


The cactus are cut using the Cacti Dies with various cardstock. The focal point one was cut using light green and orange cardstock and color enhanced with Prismacolor color pencils.


The sentiment is from the fab Posh Planters set.

That's all for now. For more inspirations using stamps, dies and stencils from Paper Smooches, please visit the Paper Smooches Blog!
