Wplus9 March Release: Group Post Day

Hello again everyone! Long time no speak. Since my last post I've been enjoying some well needed and uninterrupted time with family. But I'm back today for the Wplus9 Group Post and release day.

Before I get to the card, I'd like to share a bit of news with you all. This will be my last month with Wplus9. I've truly enjoyed my time as part of the Wplus9 Design Team and working with the amazingly talented Dawn and the DT girls. But, I've come to realized that change, even though I can be hard at times, can be a good thing. I hope now to focus more on my home and family and my own stamp designs through Papertrey Ink. But, I thank Dawn endlessly for seeing the potential in me from the beginning (over a year ago) and giving me this wonderful opportunity to grow.

Now, back to my Group Post creation featuring Brothers & Sisters and All Occasion Label Die (yep you heard me right, Wplus9 now has coordinating dies! Does it get any better than this?! Yay!!!)...
Onto a kraft card base I stamped the gorgeous Dogwood image, from Flora & Fauna I, a few times in True Black. Then attached a strip of True Black cardstock.
Die cut the All Occasion Label Die from white cardstock and stamped with the background vine image, from Design Basics: Backgrounds II, in Ripe Avocado. Then layered the label images, from Brothers & Sisters, over that and attached. From the same stamp set, I stamped the sentiment onto a punched circle and attached with dimensional adhesive.

Now, be sure to get all the fun details about this months release here and you do not want to miss what the rest of the Design Team has to share with you all today. Stop by and check them out...

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed! Have a great day!
