Heron and Lake

Hi, everybody!  Before I get started, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Zacisze Lenki - thank you for joining me!

Today I am sharing a nature-themed card.  I used Impression Obsession Heron and Lake die along with a digital background paper from Nothing But Freebies called Outside My Window (sorry this freebie is no longer available).  For the sentiment, I recycled a tea bag tag with its wonderful inspirational quote by Lao Tzu (see close-up below) and then tied some blue twine.


Here's a close-up of my recycled tea bag tag:
