I ♥ You

I have another fast post for you today. (YIKES! I've been way too busy lately!)

I've had the wonderful Stampin' UP! brad set for quite some time and never have used a brad out of it. They are truly beautiful... and you know my problem with hoarding. EEK! Sooooooo I decided today is the day to part with one of those wonderful brads. (You notice I only used ONE! LOL!)

Let me remind you, too, there's still time to participate in the Craft Us Crazy Challenge. They last two weeks, so it doesn't end until Februrary 13. This challenge is to USE YOUR CUTTING MACHINES and/or YOUR FAVORITE TECHNIQUE.

One of my favorite techniques is to round one (or maybe two) corners on an element of my card instead of all of the corners.

Here's the inside of my card:

This is my 45th card for the 100 Cards in 100 Days Challenge!

Well...those brads are certainly hoard-worthy! LOL But they also deserve to be shared and adorning such a pretty card makes good use of it! Love the colors, so rich and regal. What a pretty sentiment set - how did I miss that one? Just lovely!
