Just had to make it...

It is my bedtime and I was going up to bed when my eye landed on my new SAB set "Vintage Labels". All of the sudden a card was born in my head and I thought "I better do a quick sketch of this so I can do it tomorrow". Then I was impatient with the sketch and raced downstairs to just DO the card. No idea why, and a colour combo I am fairly sure I've never done before! I used the circle stamp in Crushed Curry (first time I even used that ink pad, I like it!) and punched it out with the scallop circle punch. Then I used a 1" punch on the middle. The stamped image was raised up on the card with dimensionals and the sentiment is actually inside the card. (as you can see just down below). I also used the "Tiny Tags" set for that pretty vine about and below the sentiment.
The paper is from the SAB 6x6 paper pad and that is the new Satin ribbon in Chocolate Chip, isn't it almost edible??
So, take some time (that you were going to be sleeping) and do something scrappy tonight :) haha

oooohhhh....nice. I've done the punch through sentiment on a 3x3" card before...never on a standard. Looks pretty!

Thanks a bunch! Me either :) That stamp set just seemed to be calling out to me to do it.
