I cut these pieces using a friend's dies. I'm assuming they are from Memory Box, but I don't know for sure. I matted this first one with black. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink, and I matted that with black, also. I cut it out using one of my Stitched Rectangles dies.
I matted this die-cut piece with textured cardstock from Die Cuts With a View. I added the loon (our state bird :)) using a Repeat Impressions stamp with ink to match the matting. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.
