Flashback Friday with Cottage Wall

Hello! I had every intention of creating this post earlier, and just as I was winding down my MDS session for the evening, I realized I had not posted my Flashback Friday. So now here I sit at 1:30 in the morning creating my post! So if I get to rambling or talking foolishness, you know what's up!

This week, I decided to use an old Page Maps sketch that had lots of squares on it.  I thought this would make for a clean and simple card, plus use up some of the retired DSP that is crowding my paper hopper!  I decided at the last minute to give it a quilted look and used my square lattice embossing folder.  Then I just added a few brads and I think it turned out pretty good!

My oldest DD even gave it her approval, although it does have a lot of purple in it, so it might just be the color talking...

I took the easy way out with the squares and used my punch. I know... it's probably not much faster than the trimmer, but I do love that I can line up the pattern when I use a punch.  Not to mention that it validates my purchasing yet another punch... 'Yes, Dear...  I really do need ALL of them!'

My Flashback items are the Cottage Wall DSP (ret) and pale plum cardstock (also retired).

Well, I am heading off to bed! Thanks for stopping in!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend and happy crafting!
