Welcome back!  I'm so glad you could come and visit.  Today we are featuring a new set called Wealthy Fish and I adore this large bamboo image in the set!  I don't know why I love bamboo so much.  It's just such a peaceful image.  I stamped, colored and trimmed out the bamboo and tied it with some burlap string.  I popped it up above a textured strip and stamped a small sentiment above the strip.  The good luck sentiment is perfect for me today, as I have a few things brewing for which I may need luck.  However, I'm not at liberty to say anything more about those things.
 
Thanks again for coming by and have a fabulous day!  Head on over to Sue's blog now!

Pretty and elegant CAS card. I bet it was a bit tough fussy cutting the bamboo - but it looks awesome! Good luck on your projects.
