Stamp Camp Sneak Peek, sort of…

flight_of_vellumThis is one of the cards I was going to demonstrate this Saturday but have been on the fence about it… there’s no sentiment on the front!  So I will be reworking this card into something similar that will be a surprise on Saturday (or next week on the blog if you aren’t able to attend)… it will be similar, but different 🙂
