APPLES TO APPLES

My card today cases THIS CARD by Lost in the 60's (Diane), SCS Featured Stamper #72. When I saw Diane's card, I knew it was another chance to use my Tart & Tangy stamp set before the end of the Occasions Mini Collection ... June 30. I have used this stamp set more often than any other stamp set I own! I felt the same way about Merry & Bright in the Holiday Mini. I sure hope Stampin' Up! continues this style of stamp set in the new catalog! I pretty much changed everything from Diane's card except the layout and Swiss Dots dry embossed background.

My card was also majorly inspired by THIS CARD by dpeterson on SCS. I fell in love with her card when she posted it yesterday, and found her card and Diane's to be a great combination!

Last night while blog surfing, I came across THIS CARD by Angie Tieman. While leaving a comment on her beautiful card, I congratulated her for using a Stampin' Up! Library Clip ... I bought these when they first came out and have YET to use ONE of them! It's not that I don't like them ... I think they are ADORABLE! ... I just never really knew what to do with them. Anyway, I received an e-mail from Angie this morning CHALLENGING me to use a Library Clip! ... and I DID IT !!!!
