I'm Here for You


Hello there...I'm popping in to share two fun cards inspired by Laurie's Make It Monday challenge.  I don't have an cover plates so I decided to use the Mighty Leaves die.  I also didn't have press and seal so I improvised!  I put removal adhesive on the card base and placed it over the die cuts.  I love how clean and crisp the tone on tone looks.  

Then...I took the cover plate and had fun with distress inks inking up the back of the card.  

Thanks for the inspiration to stretch my supplies Laurie!
