using my scraps for some more mail art

Oddly enough for me, I finished a card, using pieces from a paper that had been laid
out to keep spray inks from getting all over my table--but I did add some of
my favorite backgroundstamps on three panels before gluing them down to the
front of the card.

Spritzy paper, with the sequins waste/punchinella stamp

Three separate panels

Sentiment added to center

The backgrounds and sentiment are all from Rogue Redhead Designs, and the
design goes along with the current sketch challenge. (Hey, a chance at $15 of
new stamps?  Sounds like a deal to me!)

A few more challenges sound like fun this fine day, let's see who else wants to play:
Cards for men--Bingo:  paper piecing, stamped images, sentiment
Make My Monday--use a non-inked stamp--first go for the YOLO! 
Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge--sentiment as focal point
