But wait... there's more...

While I was working on my (eh-hem) second card for this week's challenge on Stamping 411, I got the idea for this one and despite the fact that I will be VERY tired tomorrow, I just had to put this card together. This set (Bitty Birthday) was sitting in front of me for the last few weeks. I got it free during the sale-a-brations time, and I haven't really used it (I think I used the cake once). So while I was trying to decide which shape to put my trees in (see previous post), I thought that these shapes really lent themselves to the circle, square, and tag punches. That's when I decided to mix it up a bit and put three shapes on the same card.... CRAZY, I know! I am living on the edge here people... WATCH OUT! I pulled out another sale-a-brations goodie from a few years ago (have I mentioned how much I LOVE free stuff?), the dsp, and matched it with certainly celery, so saffron, and bashful blue. I used those same colors to color in each picture. I used the blue behind each of the pieces. I finished it off by adding two Sahara sand colored brads and popping up the message.

CA-UTE! I like it!

Thanks for looking...
