 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:

"Marsh Silhouettes"

For this card I stamped the fern stamp and added punch flowers for color. The butterfly is from Cracked Hello stamp set.

This card had a lot of sponging. I used a large Post It Note to separate the water from the horizon. I stamped the cattails on the base to fill the void that the card seemed to have.
 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

"Lilly of the Valley"

I wanted to make a wedding card using Oriental influences. This card was fun to make! I used thin ribbon to attach the charm.

 I went the tradional route on this one. It's simple and elegant.
