This card has a funny story. I was poking around on my desk...the piles of "stuff" that is...and I found this tan piece with a blue swirl. Couldn't figure out where it came from. But it made me to to the bashful blue to see if it matched.
Hmm...good match. But where in the world did I get that card. Finally turned it over (duh) and saw that it was an insert piece from a package of Tim Holtz ribbons. But hey, Denise LOVES us to recycle, right??
Thus this card was born.
I used more of the packaging on the inside for a tea bag pocket.
Seam binding is dyed to match. Just "happened" to have a button to match as well.

Pretty, pretty! And I can so relate to the "piles of stuff" that you speak of - I think it is these same piles that are seriously affecting the status of my 'mojo' at the moment! Love that you reused this insert on your card - I am constantly 'saving' things that could work on cards. Good to know that some people actually get around to using them on their creations. Maybe there is hope! Hugz! :)
