I created this card using the Southwestern Charm set. I haven’t seen anything like this set and cacti are just so trendy right now. I’m loving it – perfect for spring and summer.


I created a little desert scene using patterned paper and some paper piecing. I used the Xyron High Tack Adhesive Dots (which are freakin’ awesome!) to adhere everything and foam tape for the main cactus.

So there you have it! Hope you enjoy today’s hop and thanks for following along!
