A card for no reason....

It has been a LONG time since I sat down and made a card for no reason.  Nothing due, no deadline, just a card!  This last weekend I was lucky enough to host a craft weekend with Amy Kolling and we had 15 ladies come down from all over the US and even 2 from Canada!  It was a great time and they defiantly sparked my craft mojo!  I was lucky enough to borrow these Birch Press cover plates from my sweet friend, Tracy, and I had to cut out several sets.  The first set I cut out did cut out all the way and it landed in the trash pile....but then I looked closer and had to make this....


The top 2 cuts are white yardstick, then some Aqua Mist and the card base is Soft Stone, all from PTI.  


I used this sentiment from Simon Says and cut it out with some foam tape too, for dimension.


The detail in these dies and how they looked stacked up, is amazing!  


A big thank you to Tracey, for letting me use these plates....now I need to add them to my Christmas list! :)

Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Hope you have a great weekend!
