Quite a Pair

Running a bit late this morning . . . which means I'll be running the rest of the day too - LOL! That's ok! I have a fun little number today (lol!) made using some of my new Echo Park papers and Mint Motif stamps from i {heart} papers.  I recently took a trip to a little antique "mall" of sorts in the next town over.  There was a whole basket of vintage playing cards and I was so intrigued by them.  Some of the pictures looked so neat it was shame to leave them just sitting there - especially when they were only $.50 a deck!  I have some projects I hope to try out with them soon but today I thought it would be fun to combine one of the cool cards with What a Card and I've Got Your Number from Mint Motif!

Isn't that Beach Club card just fun?!  The 2 top papers are from Echo Park's Playground line - love it!  The blue one (with the "waves" is from American Crafts).

The Blue Silk ribbon is also from i {heart} papers - I just scrunched it up with some water and then gave it a few squirts of Glimmer Mist to give a bit of depth. The little bling swirl is from Zva Creative - just gives a fun, sparkly touch!

 Thanks for stopping in today - hope you have a great day!
