Scenic View


Welcome to the weekend.  It is freezing here in Ontario this morning....frost on the roof.  Oh well, the sky is blue and the sun is shining and that is a blessing.  
I made this card for the Inspiration Challenge today at Splitcoast (see inspiration piece below)and for the Addicted to CAS; Birthday and the Simon Says Challenge.  Simple card, masked a circle, stamped the scene and then sponged with Distress inks.  The sentiment is from a Michaels dollar bin.
I hope your day is filled with many blessings and thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps:  Memory Box; Michaels dollar bin/ Distress ink, twine, Black Memento
