*mix and match Monday*

I love making cards with a warm and cozy feel to them. I want the recipient to feel they received something that was truly homespun and from the heart. This look was easy to create with this twig basket full of fruit and the toasty color combination of reds, yellows, and browns. "A Basket Celebration 1" is the perfect starter set. It includes 7 different baskets, all with an amazing amount of detail. Why do I say "starter" set? Well, did you notice the *1*? That means there's another basket set to come! I borrowed the "kindness matters" sentiment from the "February Banner" set. The Saltbox Studio has just introduced 14 brand new stamp sets, and while each set offers plenty of images and sentiments to be used alone, they work incredibly well together. So mix and match away, I say!
