Paper Craft Magazine Inspired Card

Hi Everyone! This card was inspired by a card I saw in the Paper Crafts December issue. Do you still buy magazines? I still do but I rarely see a card in the magazines that inspire me. I buy the magazines because I sometimes look at them before I go to bed or if I'm somewhere that requires me to wait, like the doctor's office, etc. I like to look through the magazines to kill time. I do have a laptop that I could probably bring to bed but it's too cumbersome to do that.

I created that circle border using Fiskar's Circle border punch. I'm not sure the name of the exact design. Fiskar now sells an oval border punch. I almost bought it today but decided that I need to use my circle ones first before buying a new punch.

Can you believe it but it took me 2o minutes to look for a sentiment that matched my card's color. Argggh! I should have just created a sentiment on my computer but I have a lot of sticker sentiments, it's a matter of looking for the right one.

I adhered the sticker on to a metal label embellishment made by Colorbok and attached it to my card using Making Memories daisy brads.

Nothing much else to discuss about this card. Hope you all have a fabulous week!!

Card Details:

Papers: My Minds Eye designer paper, SU Always Artichoke, Pretty in Pink
Accessories: Making Memories Sticker sentiment, Grosgrain ribbon, Prima flower, Making Memories daisy brads, Colorbok metal label, Fiskar Circle Border Punch
