TAWS #45


Over at TAWS they have this amazing inspiration photo -




 I was mulling over what to make for a couple of days and finally go to finish my card:



I recently ordered a whole bunch of stamp sets - couldn't resist the discount and got this adorable castle as a freebie! TAWS has the best deals out there - they are so generous!




The sentiment is a combo from two sets - Jibber Jabber and Enchanted. I stamped it with Staz-on onto that cool gold covered paper. This paper was an amazing deal I got from Michaels - $4 for a 24 sheets of different metallic papers - it was one of their Christmas paper pads. It came in so handy for this challenge! I am such a bargain shopper....

Of course I am also linking this up with the Seize the Birthday - Anything Birthday
and the Snippets Playground - the castle is from left over card stock

Hi, Cornelia: Love this kid's card---ssssooooo cute. You scored on the castle stamp---I HAVE to HAVE bargains too. I went after-Christmas-sale to HobbyLobby & found some cute glittered ornament shaped tags and already started my next year's cards--I'll use one for our Christmas in July challenge--easy!

This is such a fun card. I would have had trouble in using this digi castle, but you have aced it so well. It's wonderful with that scrumptious gold textured paper. Lucky you at getting such a great buy. Guarantee you, it wouldn't happen at our local Mike's. They just don't keep stocked up. Well, I did get some Christmas stamps after the holidays, but while I was away. Loved your card. TFS & Hugs
