Long Road Home

Here's a CASE of myself! Is that allowed? Hope so, case I rather enjoyed it. (The original is here).

This stamp is one I've had for a long time. I think it's by Magenta. I'd colored it up with Prismacolor pencils some time ago, but never could figure out what to do with it. So it went into my "extras" box and languished there for the longest time.  Today I was looking for something else, and this poor little leftover was there--staring right back at me.  I just had to figure out a way to use it.  So....

I started by matting a piece of rustic cream card stock that I'd stamped with Text Style from PTI. I hemmed and hawed about the colors, but then this piece of Melon Berry popped out of my scrap stash, and, well, the rest was pretty easy. I embossed the melon piece,  adhered the focal piece, and adhered the finished card front to a chocolate base. The sentiment was stamped using one from Boards and Beams onto a scrap of rustic cream, matted in chocolate, and popped to the card front.  The "brads" are more of those fun Candi's I talked about here.  A piece of brown ribbon finished it off, but now that its all glued together, I'm not sure it adds much. I'm not going to take it apart, though. Every time I've tried that I end up with more stuff in the ol' circular file!

Gotta run, but if you have any questions, be sure to leave a comment and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.  Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a creative day!
