X7143B Sonoma Level 2 Paper Packet

I colored the image with CTMH markers.  I cut the card base and sentiment rectangle with the our cartridge!!!!!

Here are a couple of more cards I made:

This one I used an Faux Pressed Flower embossing technique for the background. I learned this from Spiltcoaststampers.   I cut flowers with my Cricut and adhered them to the sunflower CS and then ran them through my Big Shot in a Sizzix embossing folder.  

Thanks for hopping by:)  Now hop on over to Lisa Sargent's Blog to see her amazing artwork:)
