When I think "Take Note", I think...note cards, so that is what I did!! I created this super simple, but SUPER fun set of note cards using only things that were included in this month's kit.

Each card was slightly different, based on color and sentiment, but I tried to use up a LOT of my goodies from this kit.

My sentiments all came from the new Vintage Dreamer set, released to co-ordinate with this month's kit. It is still on sale, and will be til the 10th of March to KI subscribers at 50%off, then will be available for the rest of the year!

These note cards measure 4x4, and were all made with Bazill Card Stock from the February Kit. The flowers, ribbon and pearls were all also from this month's kit.

Here are some details about the Key Ingredients kit, in case you aren't a subscriber!!

Store Discount. Subscribers will be given a special discount code to save 10% on any order placed between the 10th - 13th of the month to be combined with your subscription shipment.

For my card tonight, I started by coloring my DON-key on X-Press It blending card, and then colored him with my Copics. I am in LOVE with this SUPER cute Donkey have NO idea!! I paired it with Authentique paper from the Free Bird series(Nest, Endless, Fair Weather), and Black Licorice(MFT), Enchanted Evening(PTI), and Orange Zest(PTI). I used some Orange V Striped Twill from The Ribbon Carousel, silver brads from My Favorite Things, and a spiral clip from Creative Express. I also used the Open Scalloped Border Die-namics from MFT for my border.
