Make every minute count......

Flourishes Tuesday Challenge this week was to use flags or pennants on your card. You can find all the details here on the Flourishes Blog. I love using little pennants on my cards. But did something different today.... just creating them with pattern paper. Usually I stamp a sentiment on them.  This card is all about simple stamping and layers. 
One thing I wanted to point out.... See the striped paper framing the edge of the card.... I used Perfect Layer Rulers to do this.... cutting the layers on the top and bottom, then turning the paper and cutting the layers on the left and right side. So that the stripes are vertical and horizontal, framing the card instead of stripes all just going one way. Does this make sense??? If not leave a comment and I'll do some mini how to pics in a posting.
The Bo Bunny Timepiece Collection was so perfect to pair with Flourishes Moments in Time stamp set... I continued to the inside and also used pattern paper to dress it up. Finished card size is an A2, tent style - opening at the bottom.

  3. Wonderful card! Perfect for a man or a woman. Who would have thought all those shades of browns and earth tones would combine so beautifully. Your shading is gorgeous, too!
