Here is the 2nd card that I made while making my Baby Girl card. I just thought why waste these perfectly cut strips when I have all the supplies out in from of me. Here is a reminder of the sketch #530 from Sketch Saturday:
As I said in my previous post it was good to be getting into my stash and using up some papers that have been in there for many years. And it is also good that my collection of cards to be sending off to our Aussie Troops is growing.
All 3 of the papers used were the off cuts from my previous card. The only thing that I needed to add was the silver Happy Birthday and the stars. This time around though I used my Pinstripe Embossing folder to make the banner across the join and used my Crushed Violet Distress ink to give it a bit of definition.
It was so much fun making a 2nd card with the same supplies but coming up with a card that is different. I am going to have to look at doing this more often so that my card stash grows quicker. Thanks for stopping by my blog today and looking at my project. But before you leave I would like to leave you with this final thought:
Not a lot can be said about this one – it’s a part of my life but I try to make it not all of my life. Some days are harder than others – I am learning to live with my limitations.
