Addicted to Stamps and More #126

Its challenge time at ATSM!
And its Everybody's favorite theme- Amything Goes!


I go the idea for this card from the amazingly talented Laura Bassen, which has made a video demonstrating the technique over at Papertrey's Make it Monday. Its a worthwhile video to watch and its short....Its easy to do, but a bit time consuming, as you have to make several die-cuts and glue them together. But the result is great  -I love it!


Materials: all die cuts from Papertrey - the silver stars are the leftovers from the Papertrey snowflakes, the little trees you get from the happy sentiment - its the inside of the  letter "Y" turned upside down :)
the other sentiments are by STAMPlorations (Bloom Sketches: Daisy 2Bloom Sketches: Sunflower Artsy)
