Clean and Simple Card Making

Today I started an online class.  I always love to learn new things that I can introduce to our customers.  Just as they love to be inspired when they come to Paper! Paper!, I love to be inspired too!  

The first sketch I followed on day one:

 The lesson was to use a background stamp to "mask" - I decided to use a thank you background stamp I had and since I needed to make some thank you cards after the holidays, it worked out perfect!  I have been dying to make some little twine embellishments for while so I was excited to incorporate those!  Since Ribbon Carousel was holding a challenge for using twine or ribbon this week, it worked out even better!
