You're Just the Ticket

Hey, it's the weekend and I am posting!! That doesn't happen too often... well, technically, it's Friday night for me, so...

I have a couple of cards I created using the latest sketch over at the Mojo Monday blog. I wanted to get them up so I would remember to link them, since I usually fall short on that end.

This week the sketch was a round one... something I have never tried before. But I love to try new things, so I thought why not?

I don't have any scallop dies, so I had to do this the poor man's way - with a corner punch after removing the guide. Time consuming, but it definitely made all the difference in my design. I initially just had my navy paper border the beautiful stuff from Crate Paper (have I mentioned that I :heart: Crate Paper?), but it just didn't sit right.

And because I am so clever (such a hoarder?), I couldn't cover up that much beautiful paper. Here's how it happened. I die cut my circles, then went to layer them and realized that the floral was still a bit bigger than I wanted. I figured I might as well cut the 2 papers together when I did this, so I could save the pink rather than cut it up. This gave me the scraps to make the next card:

I am quite proud of myself - I used *four* different sheets from the Random mini deck. I really feel like I am making progress with this whole paper hoarding thing... *wink*

These are absolutely gorgeous! Love the clever way you utilised those die cut circles, and made another from scrap! And I'm a paper hoarder too, sometimes it's good to let go lol!
