Serendipity at work!

So I'm digging around on my desk looking for a tiny stamp set that has "you are my sunshine" in it. My desk is a huge mess, and I'm moving things around to look underneath them, when I found these three ornament die cuts AND the vellum circles. Ta-da! Still can't find the stamp set I'm looking for, but I've got my Merry Monday card made :)

Supplies: ornaments from K & Co; sentiment from Stampendous; Worn Lipstick & Spun Sugar distress inks; Neat & Tangled sequins; vellum, pink embroidery thread


The sequins were a last-minute add. I think there are too many BUT they're there to stay now!


xoxo,
Jessi

PS - there will be more purple. Swear to peanuts!

Girl what a lucky find! Love love those ornaments! This turned out so awesometatic!

Mess- that would be my entire desk, floor, chair, shelves. So embarrassing, but I have to craft in phases and I know you know why! Ugh! Just happy when I get crafty at all!

Sunshine? It's winter. No wonder you can't find that stamp. This pretty card fits our current weather much better anyway. :D And I like the sequins and the stitching!

Very cute card - love the pink accents. I should probably stash my extra die cuts but I don't. I give them to my daughter and she crafts with them.

To come up with this card while looking for something else shows a streak of genius! Those ornaments are beautiful, but the stitching is what caught my eye first! Beautifully embellished with sequins too, this is such a pretty card! Love it!

What fun ornament die cuts! I liked hearing how this card came about. There can be great things hiding in those cluttered piles! I hope you find your missing stamp.
