Easy Sunday

Good Morning!  I hope you're having a great weekend.  Mine is going pretty well.  I do need to get my rear in gear and go make coffee and start laundry.  But before I get to all that, I thought I would make a card to share with everyone.  My monthly card traders group challenge this month is to create faux metal frames.  I haven't done this technique in YEARS.  I'd forgotten how much fun it could be.  So today's card is dedicated to all things stashed.  What do I mean by that?  We all have our papers, supplies, tools and techniques that have been kept over the years but somehow get bypassed.  Well, I pulled some of those things out today.

First, the faux metal frame.  I cut a circle out and embossed it with silver embossing powder.



Second, the stamp.  This sweet little Swiss Pixie stamp has been sitting in a box for a long time.  And thirdly, the brads.  I hardly use brads on my cards anymore.  I think I've forgotten how to layer things up a bit.  I still feel this card is a bit flat - but cute anyway.

Supplies:
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Night of Navy (SU!)
Paper:  Candy Blossoms
Copics:  B00, B000, B95, B97, E00, E02, E34, E37, R02, RV02, RV10, V91, V93, V95, Y11, Y15, YG09, YG17, YR61
Stamps:  Swiss Pixies Heidi Among the Flowers (CC Designs)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black, Bahama Blue (Memento)
Tools:  Silver embossing powder, heat gun, embossing ink, Cuttlebug, Scallop Nesties, Apron Lace border punch
Embellishments:  white grosgrain ribbon (Offray), diamond silver brads (SU!)

I am also playing along with Sweet Sunday Sketch (the great sketch) and All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes).  Thank you for visiting me.  I wish you well.

Hugs,
Mel

Your card is as sweet as can be! Doesn't it feel good to use things you've had around for a long time and make something fresh and new? I used the same border punch on my card too. It's my go to border punch.
