Peaceful Cabin Thank You - International Highlights Blog Hop

I'm excited to participate again in Kylie's Monthly International Blog Highlights for August! The theme is "Thank You".  I created this beautiful card featuring the Peaceful Cabin Product Suite from the July to December Mini Catalogue.  I love how it turned out!  Can't you just imagine being at this cabin on a clear winter night!

  7. Cut 3" of ribbon and tie a knot on the right hand side.  Trim excess.
  8. Adhere cabin to the bottom of the card base - aligned with edge of DSP using Dimensionals.
