Frugal Friday #4

Happy Friday to you all and welcome to Frugal Friday Challenge #4! Have you got some scarps to use up? Then come and join my challenge!

*if you are looking for more posts from me this week, please scroll down*

But first, here are my top winners for last week...



Congrats ladies! :)

Now as you know, I was making wedding stationery this week using the stunning Springtime Vintage DSP, printed from MDS. You will also remember that I had loads of it left! 

In case you forgot, here's a reminder...

There is just no way I could let all this gorgeous DSP go to waste, so I have made it my mission to use it all up...I am getting there...slowly! 

Anyway, today's card is also made using this lovely paper, and more to the point, the strips you can see top right of the picture above.

Now for some reason unknown even to me, I don't seem to make female retirement cards, (perhaps it's because us ladies never truly retire do we??), so I decided to make one! The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments and is stamped in Melon Mambo, then punch using the Word Window punch. I then layered it onto some Large Oval punched DSP.

I embossed the whole card blank using the gorgeous Beautiful Baroque Embossing Folder...isn't it just stunning with the DSP? I distressed each of the strips and the oval with my Distressing Tool to give a vintage feel. I am sooooo in love with this paper...I want it on my walls! I used the layout from this week's Freshly Made Sketches as inspiration, 
and I also am entering it into the Flowers challenge at Less Is More.
