Live Fully, Laugh Often, Love Deeply

Here is the second card that I made for Laurel's Inspired by Challenge this week.

This time, I went with the bicycle and flowers as well as the vintage feel. I had some fun punching flowers out of an old dictionary I picked up either at the Thrift store. The seam binding worked well here except that I have decided it was a bit too wide for this card. If I were to do this again, I would change the ribbon to something thinner. Oh well, I still like the overall feel of the card.

I would also like to share my card at Crazy for Challenges where the theme is buttons!

Well, yesterday was a snow/ice day! No buses and I had to cancel my overnight trip out of town. We stayed close to home and I managed to steal away into my scrap space - it felt so good! I am anxious to see what the weather is going to do. I am scheduling this post - so it is Monday night right now and we have ice and snow covering everything. The poor little yellow crocus that bloomed a couple of days ago is not so happy now!

Take care,
Shanna :)

What I used:
papers: MME Lost & Found Two - Rosy
stamps: CTMH
embellishments: random buttons, antique seam binding from Vintage Pixie, paper flowers punched out of an old dictionary, wooden buttons (NEW at DAT'S)


  1. Great card...love the dictionary flowers!! Great sentiment too! Lee-Ann :)

  2. I love the way you used pages from a book. Again, causing us to think outside the box. (Maybe I'm the only one that isn't doing that!)

  3. Beautiful Shanna. I really need to start looking for some old books. I love the way they look on pages. It must be so hard to cut them up!

  4. Great card! I love the scalloped edge on the red paper and of course the flowers are just fabulous!


Thanks for visiting! I love to hear what you think of my work! :)
