TSOT538 My Friend

Happy Monday, peeps!  Today is a good day to stay inside and stamp!  I did a wee bit of that yesterday before watching PBS's All Things Great and that show!  Anyone else watching it? I remember reading those books when I was younger!  Anyway, I had been pushing these scraps around on my desk from another project and finally saw a sketch from Try Stampin on Tuesday that would work with them:

And here's how I worked my scraps into the card:

I trimmed down the Hand Penned DSP to fit the card front and matted it with some Basic Black.  The banners were cut from the same DSP, adding a fishtail cut so that the patterns were opposite.  The tag, tied with some gingham ribbon was already finished (the sentiment is from Easter Friends). so I plopped that on top with a dimensional:

Finally, I adhered it all to a mat that was embossed with the Timeworn Type embossing folder and it went on a Basic White base!  Easy and cute!  Thanks for popping by!

We celebrated Wayne's birthday and our anniversary, both on the same day, on Saturday night at a local pub!  Lots of fun and yummy food!  You can see there was nothing left of that chocolate dessert on the center of the table!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Great use of those DSP scraps, LeAnne! Love the embossed panel and that pretty Hand Penned paper! Glad you were able to get out & celebrate! Hope Miss Cassidy is feeling better. It's going to be a great day to stay inside and make cards! That wind is brutal!

LeAnne, super cute card! I like how you used the DSP banners along with the ribbon on the tag to create the 3 banners in our Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch! Thank you for sharing your creative talents and card with us at TSOT!!! -Donna
