Using My Tools Thursday # 37- Gingham Birthday

 Welcome followers and friends to my Thursday post of using my tools. Every other Thursday I try to pull something out of my stash that at one time I thought I just "HAD" to have and finally use it. It's my opportunity to pull something out of my stash I bought a while ago and didn't use or something that's collecting dust and hasn't been used in a while. For this card, I grabbed one of the tutorials on my tutorial page -the Squash card- You can find the tutorial here and many more tutorials tutorial tab here.

So what Using My Tools products am I using for this card? The floral stamp set,  pearls and this black floral paper from my stash.
I colored the  white pearls with my black copic marker and added the black gingham ribbon. Side note: Don't adhere the ribbon to the back of the card- I did on this card and found out pretty quickly you won't be able to open the card all the way. Thankfully the ATG tape I use is forgiving and I was able to remove the ribbon from the back and rub off the extra glue.

You can find the tutorial for this squash card on my Tutorial tab.

Neat card, Amy! Love how the stamp set complements the patterned paper you used. Good choice there! I've never made a Squash card, but it looks interesting. I'll definitely have to check that out. Thanks for sharing this!
