Card Mistake...but turned out ok

Good morning! Well I am in my 3rd day of being off work and am loving every minute of it! My card stash is growing and I am a happy camper to be able to play to my hearts content! Sometimes though, playing gets a little frustrating for me when things don't quite turn out as I had's card is an example of that. I was attempting to make a small card with the largest of the Eyelet Squares Nestabilites...unfortunately, the card stock I used (Gina K Pure Luxury) was toooooooo thick to cut through! So, I ended up with a card that actually had a "lift up flap". I know no other way to describe it! LOL I can get myself into some crazy situations. However, rather than throw away that awesome paper, I decided to try to make the best of it. I stamped my image using some stamps from Close to My Heart that my friend Stef had given to me...matted it onto an Eyelet Square, bordered it in red with an Inverted Scalloped Square Nestie. I really like how it turned out....added some glitter to 1/2 inch Scor Pal tape and voila...a rather "different card. Here is the inside:
Nothing fancy at all but kind of different...I just didn't want to waste my cardstock! Hope you like...let me know what you think. I hope all of you have a blessed day today...I am hoping to see my grandbabies today after church so won't have much play time today. Thanks for stopping in to see me!
