Card for Emily



Emily Dickinson, that is. This card gave me fits! I thought it would never come together. When that happens, I usually leave the area for at least an hour. I can almost always come up with something after a break. The gorgeous copper embossed bottom was stamped with Anna Griffin's Border Set. This is a huge set, with 21 stamps!! I got mine from Anita's Arts, she has a large selection of Anna Griffin products. The set I have comes as a kit with a gorgeous Chocolate Brown pigment pad, and a clear mount for the stamps. 

I paired my Anna Griffin stamps with a Crafty Secrets Birds and Botanicals Journal page. This little booklet is my go to item when I'm at a loss. Sometimes I think I rely on them too much, but they are so pretty and fun I just can't help it!!

The gorgeous satin ribbon is from Flourishes, and I added one of my pattern tissue flowers on top. I'm having a thing with these flowers. I love them, and stick them on everything. I do have the attention span of a gnat, though, so I'll probably tire of them soon enough.

Emily would swoon. I'm serious. Then write 2 or 200 more of her wondrous poems.
