{Do Not Adjust Your Monitors}

There's nothing wrong with your monitor...this card IS BUSY! Almost makes me dizzy to look at it, but I felt compelled to share it with you anyway...mainly to showcase the photo mount.

Along with the tons of other stuff I have in my craft space, I have this box full of obscure patterned papers that were either given to me, or I have just collected over the years. These papers are from that box. The good news: I used it all up, so you'll never have to see it again...lol

I was inspired to make this card because I wanted to experiment a bit with my Eastern Elegance Rub-ons from Stampin' Up! With all the other embellishments that I had hidden away in drawers, I found some photo mounts that I had purchased well over a year ago, and have never really done much with them, so I thought that I see how well the rub-ons "took" to it. As you can see, it turned out just fine. This is such a fun and EASY way to dress up those photo mounts that you may have stashed in a drawer somewhere. Fear not...break them out and USE them up!

Thanks for popping in today and I hope that you eyes will readjust just as soon as you close this blog...lol. But, please come back. I promise not to blind you next time!
