I cut her out using the Circle Stax Die-namics, and she was layered with Gold Coin(Bazzill) cut out with the Open Scallop Doily Die-namics. I then used some MME So Sophie paper, paired with Eggplant Envy(SU), and Blu Raspberry(MFT) cardstock. For my sentiment, I used the Sentiment Strips Die-namics. To finish my card off, I added some brads from Michael's, a spiral clip with some Blu Raspberry grosgrain, and three buttons tied with Natural Jute Twine. The buttons are from the Sweet Tooth, Lemon Drop, and Blu Raspberry collections from MFT.

Thanks a Bunch-July Key Ingredients!

 Hey everyone, I'm back with my last card from this month's Key Ingredients Kit from Taylored Expressions! It is FULL of GORGEOUS paper, embellishments, and FUN! It features the Cosmo Cricket Tea For Two paper collection. This is actually my last post as a Key Ingredients team member. I have had an amazing time being on this team, and I want to thank Taylor for allowing me to be a part of her fabulous team and company!

For my card today, I used the Fruity Friends set. I stamped two of the apples, and cut them out separately after coloring them with my Copics.  I then covered them with Diamond Glaze to make them shiny. the rest of my supplies are all in the Key Ingredients kit! For your money, it REALLY is a great deal!!
