I want to show you a note pad holder I made for today's inspiration over at Live & Love Craft Inspiration and Challengblog. I think it is a great gift idea! You can find the tutorial on the very talented Mariannes blog. I used the lovely Pion Design papers, they are so pretty I hardly needed any other decoration at all (no c&s thinking here, lol).
I used both sides of the gorgeous Pion Design's Poem of Spring sheet from the Fairytale of Spring collection. I distressed all the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink.
I colored the Magnolia image with distress ink pads to get that soft feel to it.
