I've decided to go with an idea I saw on a blog (not sure where now) a few years ago and am just now getting around to trying, and that is to use a photo on your card.
I often take pictures of the garden but don't know what to do with them all, so I used a few to create these cards:
I've simply embellished the photo with some coordinating ric rac and added the sentiment to make thank you cards but I think you could adapt them to any occasion.
I hope I've inspired you to use your photos on your card creations. Please link up and show us your cards! We love to see what you create! Be sure to stop by and see all the other terrific cards too!
