Charm Us
(use a charm)


a close up of the lovely verse

I made this card for my husbands birthday back in January - its made with a lovely Sheena Douglas stamp called Visitor available HERE and the sentiment and verse on the tag are from The Journey by Tim Holtz at Stampers Anonymous  - I just love that inspirational verse.

My card is another of those large 8 inch square cards, I love using these
 - so much more space to play with!

How gorgeously vintage! I love all the detail. It's a good job it was for your husband - I imagine the weight of the key would have made it a bit expensive to post!
