Had another gander in my UFO box and found a card that I had started to make a very long time ago. I was planning to use it for a card to tuck a wee bit of cash into.
I used up a VOS purse sticker as I thought it so suited the cash theme of my card. This purse sticker is about 15 years old. I think it came on a page of 5 or 6 stickers and the rest were used on layouts right away. This last sticker has been looking quite lonely in the drawer...it was good to get it used at last.
I feel like I am on a first name basis with my VOS supplies. Nothing like packing and unpacking them to remind you just what you have. I am also quite pleased I managed to get another card out of the UFO jail! This one languished in there for quite some time as I had already glued on the DP, the green scalloped border, the two silk flowers anchored with a flower brad (my NBUS item), and the sticker. I never got it finished as I lost the snippet of matching green card I had saved for the sentiment.
Today, I got the bright idea to add a second green colour as a thin strip alongside the scalloped piece. I had just enough of the second colour to stamp the two sentiments. I fussy cut around the Best Wishes stamped image, and diecut the For You sentiment with a Spellbinders Scallop die.
The background paper has a sparkle and sheen on bits of the pattern...Hopefully this photo catches that sparkle. I don't know the manufacturer anymore as this snippet was from my bits box
Still not one of my favourites, but a finished card never the less.
Hey, I just realized that I can add two used up flowers to my flower ticker! What a bonus!!! One down, 135 more to go...lol
In case you are wondering what NBUS items are, my friend Darnell has coined this word and has a challenge to go along with it. NBUS is Never Before Used Schtuff...now I know we all have some! Since my flower brad is my NBUS item, I will pop over to Darnell's blog with my entry.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. djkardkreations NBUS Challenge - mut use a NBUS item
2. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets
