SOS #235...

... has a good ring to it!

This is a little entry for this week's Shopping Our Stash challenge, 3-2-1: use three of somethin', two of somethin', and one of somethin'!

Supplies and notes:

  • This is a sister card to THIS ONE... I'm brand-spankin' to the die-cutting world, and I couldn't bear to toss the negative pieces!  So this card was created as a bi-product, and I couldn't be happier with the efficiency of this process!
  • Paper is DCWV cardstock and We R Memory Keepers gold-striped vellum
  • THREE sequins
  • TWO banners
  • ONE die-cut
Pia had noticed "1, 2, and 3" of something on the sister card, and I had already pegged this card for this challenge-- she is half-way around the world and she was on my wavelength!

I'm thinking I could use this as another baby card on my long list-- then I'd be done with five of seven!


  1. Stripes and angles, such effective details, a clever layout that doesn't require adding lots of stuff. I think you're great at keeping your designs minimalistic, lots of people struggle with just that.

  2. Fantastic use of the negative die...I never think to keep those, you think I would seeing as I never throw ANYTHING away!! LOL
    Thanks for playing along with the SHOPPING OUR STASH crew for our "3-2-1-" challenge.

  3. oh my gosh, how did i miss this last week? duh, lauren. oh well, let's just say i saved it as a treat for myself now! ;)

  4. I love the color combo
    and so stylish that you made banner big one on your card Mimi
    sweet beautifully made
    I try to catch up sweet Mimi...
