♥ Happy {Inter} National Scrapbooking Day! {a little late}

I hope you all had a wonderful Scrapbooking Day yesterday and found the time to create a little something! I had an unexpected but wonderful visit from family yesterday so I didn't get to make a little something until late last night. But at least I got to make something!!


I made a card using a wonderful challenge from the Pumpkin Spice Blog. It was their first challenge of the day. It was to make a Card - any size, even a mini, with the following elements:

- the color Blue,
- something Round,
- at least 3 layers or 3 different papers


I must admit, I had a lot of fun making this one! I used a mix of papers from Crate Paper and Cosmo Cricket, chipboard pieces also by Crate Paper, handmade stick pins, pearls, lace and seam binding.


You still have some time left to join in on the fun at the Pumpkin Spice Blog! There are challenges there for everything from cardmaking to scrapbooking and more!

Have a wonderful and Blessed Sunday!

Gorgeous card, Melissa! The little wooden spool accent that you added to your stick pin is precious! I have some of those little spools in my stash, so you've given me some inspiration on how to use some of them. :)

Karen Letchworth said...

Very cute card, Melissa. I absolutely love pretty stick pins, and I also enjoy using those little spools. I just ordered the Just Rite Grandma's Attic set (thanks to you inspiring me) and I can't wait to play with that. Hope you're having a great week.
Blessings,
Karen
