Here’s one of the cards we created this month.  Next  club is Saturday, March 13, 2010.

Stamps: Great Friend, Short & Sweet
Paper: Merry Moments DSP, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla
Ink: Old Olive
Other: Scallop Oval punch, Large Oval punch, 1/4 Always Artichoke grosgrain ribbon

Here’s the card open:
