Anyway, this is what I came up with
It's based on a Make A Card Monday card by Kristina Werner. The frame was so easy to do - I used my Martha Stewart Scoring Board - and it's so effective.
The paper is something I've had in my stash for at least 5 years. It's so pretty and shimmery but I had never gotten around to using it. The sentiment is from PTI and has been in my stash for well over 12 months without being used. It's been embossed with White Embossing Powder.
I really love how it's turned out and it's a design that I will be able to reproduce for the squillions of birthday cards that I need to make for September, and use some more of that unused DSP that is laying around in my stash.
I can't wait to see what you use from your stash for this week's challenge.
Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend
