Imagine The Possibilities!

So far, I've had a great Sale-a-Bration sales period.  We've still got a month left.  The stamp set, Fresh Vintage, is one that I've used for several projects.  I am certainly going to miss it once SAB is over!

I have to admit that the art piece for this card sat on my UFO (unfinished objects) pile for several weeks.  I had plans for it, but then several workshops and stamp camps got in my way - and the card just went to the back burner.  I colored the stamp with Lucky Limeade, Marina Mist, and Island Indigo markers, then stamped it onto Very Vanilla card stock and cut it with our new Labels Framelits die.  There it sat.

Fast forward to LeeAnn Greff's brilliant blog post. She's got a great photo tutorial on how to create this fabulously folded card.  Here's my version:

Here is the card in the open position:
And here is the inside.  This card is going to a special lady who joined my team this week. Congrats, Lynn!
