Hello my friend!!!

whom I've never met in person, but I feel like I've known her forever!  The other day she sent me to the "desert diva's blog" and from it I wound up at another blog where I saw this card (scroll down to the bottom card with the three hearts & berry sprigs ) and it was my inspiration.  This is not the type of card that I usually design......but I really like the cleaner, simpler look and will start making more of them.  I had seen another card where the creator had used three inked blocks for her background and I really liked that concept and decided to use it in my design.  I found the "berry sprigs" doing a google search, modified them and made a file to cut using my Cameo.  The "hello" is a Miss Kate Cuttables file and you can find it here....I love it!!!  I scored the top layer on all four sides.  There are two berry sprigs, one on top of the other and I used "Glossy Accents" on the berries, "Wink of Stella" on the leaves and I popped up some of the berries.

Thanks for stopping by.......let me know what you think of this card!
