Monday Montage 13

        Hello there and welcome back for the bi-weekly Monday Montage blog hop.  You should have arrived here from the wonderful Cathy Casey's blog.  If not and I'm your first stop- no worries! Simply use the back/next buttons at the bottom of this post to navigate your way around the hop.  Trust me- you won't be disappointed!

When I first started making my wishlist from the Occasions Mini  back in December, it was extremely long.  Needless to say that I had to trim some items off until I could put in another order.  I wasn't sure what to take of my list first but one of the items ended up being the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  Boy was that a big mistake!  I just got the punch in my order this past Friday and let me just say WOW!  I LOVE this punch!  It is so much fun to use!  Lots of possibilities for cards, tags, 3-dimensional items and everything in between!  How did I ever live without this punch?

My card tonight is not my original design and I'm not exactly sure whose it is as I have seen it on so almost every blog I visit!  I didn't really think I needed the Scalloped Tag Topper punch until I saw this style card.  I LOVE it!  Such a fun addition and of course super easy to create!

For my card, I used the Retro Fresh DSP and the Peechy Keen Stamp set.  They both coordinate perfectly! My bow was created using the Gold Baker's Twine which can also be found in the Occasions Mini. Unfortunately when I placed my last order I forgot to order more Baked Brown Sugar card stock.  Sorry about that!  I know Soft Suede is not part of the Retro Fresh product suite but I think it's close enough!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my card!  Please clock the next button below to visit the amazing Dara Gloden!  I know she has something fabulous in store!
