    Oh my goodness what a beautiful card! I love a card that is so randomly made yet with such purpose. Stephanie you make it look so easy but for some reason it can be so hard. I have to add how well that video was made. I have been wanting to start making card videos and I enjoyed watching and listening to your video so much! You have given me so much inspiration… I’m off to rifle through my daughter’s planner stash and my old stationery for some fun papers to create with this Monday ?

    Ok this why I buy stamp and dies, and watch designers! Ha! To this is a bit out of my comfort zone (well maybe a lot ) but I am going try. I don’t save a lot of ‘extra paper’ so …your other ideas were good. Besides your card turned great…off to the crafty table!

    Though I’ve never participated in the challenges I’ve always enjoyed looking at the projects everyone comes up with. This one is a stunner! I love your card, Stephanie, and I’m loving the “stories” behind the papers of all the cards being submitted. What a great MIM.

    The paper from Nepal is probably made from the bark of the Lotka plant. It’s a common income earning cottage industry for women in the rural areas of Nepal. Your card is lovely and I’m inspired to use hand-printed paper my daughter brought back from Japan.
