Stick on a Smile!

  I am combining some really old and really new stash in this one little card.  To create the shadow box window, I dusted off my metal ruler and my Xacto knife!  I recall when those were major crafting tools; my how far we have come :)

  The shadow box is a little like the Polaroid dies that are trending now.  My really old stash are the four metal flower brads that I have probably had for ten years by now!  My newest stash is the SRM Stickers "We've Got Your Border" sentiment.  The grey polka dot paper and the gold diamond/quatrefoil paper are both from Glitz Design "Yours Truly" 6x6 pad.  The 3D layered butterfly sticker is MME  Happy "The Sweetest Thing."

  My inspiration came from a Danni Reid sketch challenge that I saw at Scraptastic Club:

OH MAN I used to cut all my card bases with an Xacto knife & metal ruler!
I love the layered embellie - that sunshine piece is AWESOME - and those pretty little flower brads. Such a great frame, too - it really sets the whole thing off! And YAY for using old-school tools :)
