Batten Down the Hatches

We're expecting to get hit by Hurricane Irene late Saturday into Sunday.  I do hope it is not as bad as the weather people predict.  Time will tell.  I guess we're as ready as we can be.  Earlier this week, we had a bit of an earthquake.  Too much in one week for me! 

Anyway, I have a card to share today.  I challenged myself to use up a box of scraps I had that were too pretty to toss.  I love the paper.  I think it may be K&Co.  Wish I could find more of it.  The white scroll design is raised and feels a bit like felt.  The tag, I think, is Melissa Frances.  Stamp is from Papertrey Ink and rhinestones are from Recollections.  The little bird is from Prima.  The first photo shows the tag in the envelope, and the second photo shows how it looks without the envelope.  TFL
