Oleander

First of all, congratulations to Jenny!!! You are the lucky winner of Jane's Pretty Poinsettia! Here is Mr. Random.org's pick:

Please email me and I will forward it to Jane. She will be the one sending you your free image! =)

On to today's card.

I made this card using the September release from Sweet November Stamps by Amy Young.

Her name is Oleander. Isn't it a beautiful name? She is such a cutie and I had a lot of fun coloring her. Oleander along with the rest of Amy's Twisted Sisters stamps and all the C.C. Designs September releases are available starting today at All That Scraps!

I paired her with Cosmo Cricket's Matilda collection. I trimmed along the wavy pattern from the paper design then added the faux stitching after adhering it with foam tape on the card base.

Here is the inside of the card. The sentiment on the card is from the Fancy Phrases set from Waltzingmouse Stamps.

That's all for today. Hope you a beautiful day! =)
