The other day, I was so excited to learn that I was the winner of some free cut files, from 17 Turtles! Juliana Michaels does an amazing job. I've always been drawn to her designs.  I had been "shopping" already and so knew what I wanted.

Last night I made a little card using the cut file called Up-N-Down Background. You can see it here in her Etsy Shop.

And here is the card:

The papers and cork are from the Sycamore Lane collection by Elle's Studio. I layered the cut file with some of the patterned paper in between. I love the way it turned out. 

You can find this collection by Elle's Studio in the Paper Issues shop here. Using code melissa20 will save you 20% off! Woohoo!

There is so much to be thankful for! 

Such as.... thank you for swinging by today! If you are in the U.S., I hope that today has been one where you have been able to ponder all your blessings in life.
