A Note of Thanks

Hello,

Today I am sharing a card that I made using Papertrey Ink's Happy Trails set. The idea for this card came from a commercial I saw while watching TV. I saw squiggly lines similar to the ones found in the Happy Trails set. In the commercial the lines came together to make a flower. I played around a bit and this is what I came up with! :) The small flower uses the smallest of the swishy lines and the background is created using the largest of the lines. I am really really happy with the look, very simple but not if you know what I mean!! This is what I was talking about yesterday when I mentioned the versatility of this set!







Thanks so much for stopping in,


Hollie
