IMG_6950Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Life is Wonderful July SOTM Stamp Set, Jackson Paper Packet, inks (Juniper, Barn Red, Cocoa), Sparkle & Shine Washi Tape 3-Pack, Gold Polka-Dot Washi Tape, Chocolate Woodgrain Washi Tape,

With all girls, I don’t use these colors very often but the Jackson papers pair so well with this stamp set.  I used the flourishes to add to the background but stamping second generation with Juniper ink.  The larger stamp makes a nice photo frame.
