The little card that couldn't...

couldn't be made in time for the huge Waltzingmouse Stamps competition last Saturday, that is! I tried to get it finished but those darn kids kept asking for food and other life neccessities!

Instead, I will share it here.

The background was made by stamping the lace border strip with Versamark on Hawaiian Shores and clear embossed. I cut the large circle using my Coluzzle circle cutter (old-school, huh?!), stamped the flowers from Spring Baskets and colored in with Copic markers. I then added the ribbon and buttons and adhered it all to a Vintage Cream base.

Thanks for looking!
