One of a Kind

I find a product that I like, and then it seems like I have to put it on everything. These little rhinestone frames from Close to My Heart, just seem to belong on everything, lol. The circle needed something, and well, I had one more of these frames....Perfect!
I made the card for Taylor's Expresion cupcake challenge. Her cards are always so beautiful, it's hard not to want to try out the sketch yourself. Cardstock: CTMH in Hollyhock and black, Stamps: CTMH - Spot on Backgrounds and Be Yourself. Other: black brads, hollyhock ribbon and rhinestone frame. Pattern Paper: CTMH- Stylin'. I liked how Taylor used vellum, so I stamped the girl on some clear overhead projection sheets using Staz-On ink. My ink is running out, I think, because it didn't completely stamp solid, but I thought It gave her a little highlight. No mistakes in crafting...right?? Then I put that image on top of the polka-dot background. Check out Taylor's Blog to see her creation and all the others that have created something from the same sketch. They are wonderful!!
Then, try it for yourself. Have fun!
