We have been developing new projects for upcoming classes!!!

Check out this lovely Cheery Lynn Designs Small Lace Faerie Queen w/ Angel Wing die.  This card was created by Lisa....
This is a beautiful delicate die!  Absolutely one of our favorites!!!!  For the frame Lisa used Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Twenty.  She stamped the sentiment on velum and added a hand made pin.  Here's the view of the whole card....
