Live your bliss card made using the Serenade cartridge.

Hello, friends!

I have carpet cleaners coming today! Woohoo!!...I love when my carpets are freshly cleaned. I just hate the work that it takes to get the house ready for the cleaners.
Today I have another card using the Serenade cartridge. This one is super simple to throw together. That is one of the great things about this cartridge. These cuts have such a simple beauty.

The paper is from My Mind's Eye.
I cut the branch out at 2 3/4". The paper ric rack is a Papertrey Ink die using my cuttlebug.
Thanks so much for stopping today!!

Have a great weekend! See you guys next week.
