A card to share...a card that almost did not exist. There is a pad of paper hanging on my peg board: Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary. It has only been opened to look at and I never wanted to use the pretty paper since it is the only pad of it that I own. Well, there are several challenges this week that just called out for the Ladies Diary paper and then Use It Tuesday said the challenge was "You Can't Touch This". The challenge is to use something that you had not used and liked so much that you avoided using. You all should have seen me when I pulled out the first sheet. I laughed and said "Nah, I will use a different pad" but then I realized that I cannot keep doing this to pretty paper! I have to use it. It felt good to do so!
The goods: The card was made from Kraft paper. Kraft paper was also punched with Martha Stewart's Deco edges and added on the green striped Ladies Diary paper as shown. The bunny stamp was hand made from local crafter extraordinaire, Brianna Corr Scott. (http://brianacorrscott.com/stamp-shop/ ) A bit of ivory twine was added around the bunny's neck. The stamp Happy Day was a Michaels bin purchase. Light green gems were added along the Kraft edging and on the banner. The flower bundle is from an unknown supplier and I wrapped it in yellow ribbon.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope the Happy Day bunny card put you in the spirit to celebrate spring!
