Today's set is very pretty and would be great for many types of cards.  Its called "Umbrella's and Fans"

I must say I'm a little disappointed with my contribution today.  I had three cards planned but I only had the time to make one. Oh well, I'll have to show you my other ideas another time.  For today here is what I came up with!



I love the opaque white marker on kraft combined with the white stitching.  Simple, but a pretty note card.

I hope you enjoyed my card!  Now its time to hop along to talented Sue to continue with the hop. Or if you came to my blog first, click over to the Mark's Finest Papers blog to start from the beginning.  Our DT is so talented you won't be disappointed!  :)



Come on back tomorrow for more creativity!

No need to be disappointed. You only need to make one creation when it is a gorgeous as this. The white on the kraft looks amazing.

Like the faux stitching with the white ink. Like the cut out. Like the twine added for texture.
