  • Simple and pretty.  I used the Ornate Tag Topper Punch to crop both ends of the tag.  It’s perfect for slipping through the Bermuda Bay Thick Baker’s Twine or other ribbon.

  2. Agreed . . . simply change the sentiment and it could be birthday. Thanks, HJ!

  3. Very Nicely Done My Friend!

  4. Ginger Toivonen

    Love the color combo & the unique treatment with the thick baker’s twine!

  5. great card! love the layout and the colors you chose. Nice to see a sympathy card with colors other than grey, brown or black. I also think with the sentiment you used, it could be used for a get well card or just to say you were thinking of them.

  6. Love this sketch and you used it beautifully, this colors are so cheerful and sweet, the sentiment says it all, it’ll sure comfort the recipient.

  7. Oh , I love that one , easy on the heart , 🙁
