I didn't post last night as the blog problem pissed me off and I was exhausted from the stamp show. I will post later on how I felt about the show and how taking a small tote bag to keep from spending doesn't work.
I love those little chipboard pieces you can buy-some just solo chips and some on sheets of related themes. These chippies were part of a company line that has rotating racks where the stores would put them by color/style with everything that's related to that particular theme right there to choose from and they were betting you took it all.
It did not do well locally and all the chippies were in bins for 5 and 10 cents and I took a bunch! I did like some of the textured patterned card stocks for this company but I always cut stuff up- I have no idea what lines I used. The vellum behind the chippies was a scrap that may have been SEI. I started with a dotted piece of cardstock for the base card and just layered away until it looked right and ta-da! It looks good. I always try to hide my brads, so you will see I did pop the brad thru the star and a few layers without going all the way thru to the inside. I like neat insides.
This card was fun and again used up some scraps-and the gnomes like to help me out a lot too.
