Then you stumbled around for a good ten minutes, and I said I'd never seen anyone look so dumb before...

Ok, I am going crazy! I seriously thought I had shared this card with you, but it's not in my Splitcoast Gallery or in my blog history (that I can find), so here goes!

This is one of my favorite cards I made for the My Favorite Things release earlier this month. What's funny is that it was the last one I did, and it kind of got thrown together at the last hour. Isn't that weird how that works sometimes?

I based the layout from an old MFT Sketch Challenge (#11 I think?), but left out a circle panel. The tub image is from the My Favorite Things Presents line (this one's by Annie LaPoint), and it's one of my faves to color. I wish I had a cute diamond bathtub like that! Anywho, I stamped the image twice and colored & cut one out to pop up on top (say that 3 times fast). This is such a great look to give your cards a little interest, but it's easy! Then I added the layers and piercing. Of course I tried to find a spot for ribbon, but it just didn't work this time.

Well I'm back to playing Wii with the kiddos...it's my last day of vacation...back to work tomorrow (boo). Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
