Stamp Set Roulette {Missing You}

Monday, March 25, 2013

 
 
 
Today's card was created in 7 minutes and 16 seconds.
The little banner was already made, just not stamped.
This little banner is made with the center of the card hanger die cut.  You know, the part we would usually throw away?  I loved the shape and knew I could do something with it.  I love the little banner it creates because it is wider in the middle and tapers on the ends.  I just made a few snips...!
 
I don't have any sequins, which is the theme of this month's PTI Blog Hop, but I did have these cool little faux eyelets that to me look very much like sequins without the facets.
 
 
This card features two of my older stamp sets.
In an effort to revisit these older sets I have, and still love, I challenged myself to a Stamp Set Roulette.  These two sets were chosen randomly and had to be used together.  These sets were much easier to marry than my last two picks.  I am really enjoying having these sets on my desk again!
I love that Leigh decided to accept the challenge too.  You can see her beautiful card here.

 
Have fun at the hop. 
Can't wait to see what you've made!

  1. I love your banner - i would have never thought to use the inside part of the card hanger die! And, you fooled me at first glance - they look like sequins until you look up close :). Beautiful card!
