Inspiration post with Love Letter Avery

Hello DT Leslie here with today's inspiration post.
With Valentine's Day around the corner, I decided to 
make a card using Love Letter Avery. She is so adorable with her 
long curls and her cute little love note!
I also want to make it a shaker card. 
I hope you all like my card! 
Stop on over to the Paper Nest Dolls store
and get you some of the most cutest stamps out on the market!

I hope you all have a wonderful crafty day!

Avery with Rose

Happy Friday, Crafty Friends!

I hope that you're having a great week and have some time for crafting this weekend. I'm here to inspire you to do just that :) !

For my project, I used the gorgeous image "Avery with Rose" for my card. The image is colored in copic markers. I added some pretty papers from Kaisercraft and some die cuts. I distressed the edges and inked them with Distress Ink "Vintage Photo".

I hope you like my creation and enter a creation of your own into our "Anything Goes" Challenge! Have a wonderful day and weekend!
