Take Note

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
Here is a card I made for the Taylored Expressions February Key Ingredient  Subscriber Challenge and Blog Hop.  (Whew, that was a mouthful!)  The theme this month is Take Note.

(Sorry for the poor quality of the photo, I think my camera battery needs to be recharged)

Here are the ingredients that are NOT in the kit:  Stamps set: Labels of Love and Minature Motifs; Ink: Distress Ink: Vintage Photo and Archival, Coffee. T.E. Dies: Take Note Frame 3 and Medium Scallop Border; a small manila tag

Directions: cut base from kraft card stock 5.5 x 11; cut Watermelon card stock, 5-3/8 x 5-3/8; cut Designer Paper (My Mind's Eye) 5.25 x 5.25 and stamp on lower corner the label and sentiment. Diecut scallop border using coordinating dp and diecut Take Note Frame from Kraft card stock.  Cut frame in thirds and sponge around edge with Distress ink.  Stamp sentiment "Thinking of You"; Stamp tag using the Mini Motifs and sponge around the edges.  Cut ribbon, tie bow, adhere rose.  See placement: place tag and frame before adhering the scallop border. Adhere the layers, add the bow and flower to tag.

Thanks for looking and be sure and check out Taylored Expressions for more info about the Key Ingredient Kits and enjoy the subscriber hop (the hop runs through March 8!)

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.  Romans 12:2
