North Coast Stamps April Release

 
Have you checked out North Coast Creations, the sister company of Our Daily Bread Designs yet? If you are into super cute critters and vintage stamps, NCC is the place to be. We are very excited to share with you a new release today! The Design Team members (also affectionately known as "The Coasters")  have created some beautiful cards!  For complete deets and all links please visit North Coast Creation's Blog .
 
 Here's my card featuring the new image, Roses....
 
 
and here's a copy of the stamp set...  isn't it just FABULOUS???  I love all the vintage/country possibilities this beauty gives me!!!
 
 
For my card I used a dark red card stock base.  I layered coordinating DP on a white base.  I wanted my base to resemble a patchwork quilt, so I cut everything at angles and gently glued them together on my base.  I then trimmed everything down to fit.  I distressed all edges and added a bit of ink around the edges for interest.  The focal image is colored with Copics and framed with a Spellbinder die.  A few buttons from my stash finish off the primitive feel of this one.  Kinda reminds me of a beautiful old quilt stored in the attic. 
 
Don't forget to leave the team some love on their blogs by 9:00 PM April 17th 2013.  You just might win a set yourself!  ;-)
 
 
Thanks as always for stopping by!  Blessings!!!
 
Lori
