Playing along

Starting off the New Year with a fun card this afternoon. My card is based on the sketch from the Just Us Girls blog.

My interpretation is made with some designer paper I have had forever, before my Stampin' Up days. I used several Stampin' Up punches including the scalloped circle punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, 1 1/4 circle punch, and 1 1/4 square punch. I also used the Big Shot and the Sizzix Buttons #5 die cut. The embellishment on the right with the ribbon is based on embellishments made by Michelle Wooderson and her site Mish Mash. I just love her work! I really like how this card turned out.

Hopefully I will get some more stamping time in tomorrow. I just love 3 day weekends!

Have a blessed night,
