Out with the Old
To build up my card stash, I'm working through Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry 6x6 paper pad that I've had quite awhile. Many of the papers I'm using are ones I'd "saved" for that special card that just never got made until this weekend.
The card above was actually my leftover card. I cut the one below first and used the extra piece from it and another scrap I had to make the base for the top card. I like the top one best as so often happens. Does that happen to you? Your leftovers actually make the prettiest stuff.
Anyway, this is also for Two Peas "It's All about Layers" challenge since I pulled together several papers with the border strips to bring it all together. On top are buttons and brads. I resisted the urge to put a flower on this one, too. See other challenge entries at 2 Peas Layers Challenge The challenge ends tonight at midnight, central time. There are lots of them so check them out and enter for a chance to win.
