Using up Scraps

Yesterday I saw a similar card to this over on OWH's blog and just had to try it. So I kind of watched the video tutorial and then ran from there. Great way to use up scraps and use some of the border punches that don;t get enough use. I really like this one!

These aren't my usual colors but I think it turned out well. I always have trouble matching papers together. I can never decide which ones look right. The sentiment and flowers is from the February 2014 Simon Says Stamp Kit. I heat embossed the sentiment. Each of the layers is popped up with very thin pop dots so it's got some height to it but it's still very mailable. I am going to use this as a birthday card and add a birthday sentiment to the inside.

I am entering these challenges:
I am still missing all my Feedburner blogs that I used to get by email. It's really making me frustrated. And I can't figure out how to unsubscribe to  resubscribe. And when I try to subscribe again it says I am already subscribed. Makes me want to scream.
Tomorrow is mt Friday this week. I took Friday off to help my husband tile the bathroom. We gutted it and now we have the new tub in so we have to tile the walls around the tub. Trying to get things together before the wedding in September.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope it was a good one for you and looking ahead to the weekend! Wishing you lots of sunshine!
