My great find at Hobby Lobby

My friend Carmalitta, had a birthday on Saturday. I made her this birthday card. I used the sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers set called BRING ON THE SUN. I used the sketch from The Sweet Stop- SSS191. I got gift cards to Hobby Lobby for Christmas.(The perfect gift by the way- Thanks Mom, Kathy and Jimmy!) I got this Martha Stewart border punch and this pretty paper from K&Company. I had used most of my gift cards up and was waiting for my ride home. (2 hours of shopping at Hobby Lobby was too much for my kids, they decided to go to the mall instead of staying with me) I was standing by the floral section and as I was standing there I noticed a scraggly filler branch. It was not real so it didn't have the brittleness that I expected but was very supple. I knew right away that it would go great on my cards. I bought that branch. I cut it apart and put some of it on this card and some on the next card. I have enough left over for about 20 more cards. Not bad for $1.99 (It was 50% off).

Same papers used on this card because it was what I had laying out from the first card. I used the sentiment s from Mark's Finest Papers set called PUSSY WILLOWS. This card is going to my sister April.
