My first card is a combination of the June Card Kit (paper) and Large Die of the Month
hello lovely

I took out my Zig Clean Color Markers and colored the branches in various shades and colors.
Since it is water-coloring, the mix of water and pigment left a variegated look. Love that!
hello lovely-

The geometric frame and branches  from the Large Die of the Month are so trendy and beautiful.
I paired it up with the branches and they fit perfectly.

 I also used the paper from the June Card Kit.
