Love how you did the background in 3's, that that sentiment stamp is great.

Your cards are so awesome, Corie. My envies came in for my 5 x 5 cards so I'm ready to mail them out. Can you skip over to my blog and e-mail me your address? I contacted the ladies in my group. Did the last lady, in my group, participate? Does she have a blog? I would like to contact her to get her address. This was an awesome swap. I borrowed a girlfriend's set, so it was fun using something different from what I have. My card is 5 x 5 and is a gate fold. It was so much fun making this card. Thanks for hosting.
