Here are two cards I created using the stamp set Island Life. Another one of my cards is featured on the Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Company's blog today. Be sure to pop over and look at that one too.
This card features just a sentiment from the set.

On this card, I combined an image from the Island Life set and a sentiment from Silly Shells. The sentiment is stamped onto twill tape and attached to the card front with brads.

Now hop along this route, and be sure to leave some love along the way.

Karen--both of these cards are so pretty! I especially like the top one with just the sentiment. And all 3 of your cards yeseterday were so cute!!! The bottom one with the bright & cheery flowers is my favorite. Sorry that I didn't get to comment yesterday, but my BFF's dog is very sick and she was really upset last night. TFS!
