Frugal Friday - Happy Holidays

Here's another "from the scrap bag" card for you today...

This one is REALLY little and is an "easel card". Claudia, on SUDSOL, challenged us all to make one last week and this the one I did. I don't think it qualifies for the challenge, because it uses a retired stamp set, but I thought I'd try my hand at it anyway...

I did plan to make another one, but we all know how that works out - LOL!

Anyway, here's the card:
The base is a leftover piece of Sahara Sand which I further trimmed down to 3 X 6 inches. It was scored at three inches and again at 1 1/2 inches to create the base for the easel. The front panel is 3 X 3 inches, also Sahara Sand.

Both pieces of DSP are from the Thoroughly Modern DSP pack which I thoroughly love (heehee!). The ribbon is taffeta and the pearls I've had for a little white. The stamped image is from a set I borrowed while I was at Diana's a couple of weeks ago. It's SU!, but I can't remember what the set is called.

What do you think:

INKS: Bermuda Bay
PAPERS: Whisper White and Sahara Sand Cardstock; Thoroughly Modern DSP
ACCESSORIES: Ribbon and Pearls

Happy Stampin'!
