Happy H{ippity} Hop - February 21, 2011

I made this card for "Something Shrinky" swap on SCS.   I stamped the key from "Music of My Heart" on brown shrink plastic to create a charm.  The postcard is from "Thoughts from the Past" and the sentiment is from "Cherish Your Dreams."  I made the pins with pearl quilter's pins (they are a little shorter than corsage pins and the pearl head is smaller too, but you get 100 for $3 and I think they fit better on cards, just my opinion) and beads from Michael's. 

Stamps:  Music of My Heart, Thoughts from the Past, Cherish Your Dreams
Paper:  Kraft cardstock, Michael's (pink), scrap
Ink:  Palette - Burnt Umber
Misc:  shrink plastic, quilter's pins, plastic beads, button, Michael's ribbon, hemp cording
