This card was inspired by the remaining scraps of a Simply Scrappin' kit called Island Blossoms. I drew inspiration for the design from the Fab Friday challenge #89. I was not sure at first if I was going to like the result, but once I got the idea of add the banner at the bottom and overlay the circle tag on it, my design started taking shape and I started really liking the look of the card.
You'll notice the glimmer tape from Sale-A-Bration at an angle in the background (I wish we carried this stuff in the regular catalogue all year long!), and the sentiment comes from the current set called Tin of Cards. I also used the Envelope Punch Board to make a matching envelope.
Afterwards, I played with the kit scraps some more and came up with two 2-1/2" x 3" cards. The unexpected format came from a cardstock scrap that was in the mix. I was even more surprised when came time to make a matching envelope using the Envelope Punch Board to discover there was actually an envelope format for this card size on the board! Sentiments were also stamped with the Tin of Cards stamp set (annual catalogue, p. 86).
