Hello Swirlydoos fans.....
Lynne Forsythe here,
thank you for stopping by the Die~Namites Dies blog.
I had wanted to create a card using
Die~Namites Dies August Sketch Challenge
(then my internet went down.....grrrr)
so I created this card for my son, instead.

I was inspired to keep my card clean
(a style I am not very comfortable with)

I used Die~Namites Dies 
Leafy Flourish

cut from Core'dinations Cardstock,
it matched perfectly with
7Dots Studio ~ Cold Country.

I also used pieces parts from last months colored
Large Ivy die

I added Petaloo ~ Darjeeling Mix Petities ~ White
a bit of jute and gauze
and Tattered Angels ~ Tattered Tangles Quotes
and there you have it....

my clean card!!!!!

You can join along with
Die~Namites Dies Sketch Challenge

winner of a $25 Gift Certificate to
