High praise....

I've been spending a lot of time in my craft room getting ready for a craft sale at the end of March.  And, since we're meeting my friend Vivi and her husband in Memphis in March, time grows short for adding to my inventory.  I wanted to do something a little differently for this show so I fired up my Silhouette Cameo and cut some Monica Bjork files.  I am awed by her talent which she gives away for free.

This cut file is Laced Frame 15 and actually took a bit to 'clean up'.  Not all the tiny holes cut cleanly but the diamond shapes did.  Perhaps my blade needs to be changed.  I cut this frame at 5.5" x 5.5" and used Bazzill card stock to make my card.  After I cleaned up the frame, I masked the center and sponged Memento Summer Sky, Paris Dusk, Danube Blue and Sweet Plum on it.  I used Paris Dusk to stamp Penny Black's Queen Anne's Lace onto the center and touched it up with Spica Clear.  The sentiment is PTI's Birthday Basics.  I curved it on the acrylic block so it filled the corner and I dotted the 'i' with a Recollections Pearl.

This is a close up of the center - don't you just love clear stamps?  You have the ability to cut them apart, twist and curve them, they're just so versatile.  You can't see the sparkle, but there is some.

Thank you, Monica, for your lovely cut files, you are amazing.
