Cheers

Hello all!

TGIF and Good Friday to those of us who are celebrating the season of lent. The kids are off from school starting today and all next week. So we will be doing alot of unwinding!

Today I want to share with you what I created using the inspiration photo from Curtain Call...


I had fun making this card...using a tiny hole puncher to make lots of little confetti...

I used a larger hole puncher to trim the large circles. The large hole punch is Martha Stewart, not sure about the smaller one. All cardstock is from Papertrey Ink. I adhered the confetti and stamped the sentiment onto vellum than adhered the vellum to the base. The sentiment is from Avery Elle, Celebrate. I used black nk from Hero Arts. I added some clear sequins from Neat & Tangled Stamps to finish the card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Michelle
