The Woods are Lovely

"The woods are lovely, dark and deep.   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep."

-Exert from Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost

I saved my favorite project created from the Artful Delight Card Kit to show you last! It was so simple to make too! I cut a card base from the nice, thick card stock included in the kit, adhered a panel of patterned card  stock from the kit, and added a strip of cream paper stamped with a sentiment from the awesome stamp set from the kit. To finish it off, I wrapped the card with some jute twine and topped it with one of the beautiful flowers from the kit too.
