Sitting Marci

I am really liking this new die from Cheery Lynn Designs that I picked up from the store over the weekend. The die itself is probably not new but for me it is a new die. It is called "inverted scallop circles" and they are nesting dies. I decided to use "Sitting Marci" from LaLa Land Crafts for my card.
I layered the papers before cutting out the circle in the middle. The patterned paper is from Echo Park which I've been hoarding but I've told myself that it's time to let go and use up the papers.
For the window, I put a piece of clear acetate between the layered papers.
And that cute little "hello" stamp is from Dandelion Designs. We will be using this stamp this coming Saturday at Ben Franklin Crafts Pearl City's paper party. I'll be there from 10-11 am doing a make & take. Sorry, I got sidetracked. Back to my card. Not sure if you can see it but I used a scallop border punch to make the bird border.
On the inside of the card, I covered it with the bird side of the paper and a strip of the houndstooth pattern.
Well, thanks for stopping by today and I hope I get to do some crafting this week!

Gosh Cheryl, that's a darn cute card. I guess I'll have to visit your husband's store to get the die. The use of the acetate is pure genius. Thanks for sharing another terrific card idea.

Hi Cheryl,
Marci is such a cutie. Nice layout and I'll need to add the inverted scallop circle to my "wish list."
