wild asparagus family

Today's 365 Cards Scor-it Challenge is a matchbook card! I used double-sided paper by Wild Asparagus. I've actually had it for a bit and thought this would be the perfect project for it. I'm a huge fan of paisley pattern...especially with the splashes of blue!

I cut the paper 4.25 inches by 8.5 inches. I scored it at 1 inch on one side and 3.5 inches on the other. I secured the 1 inch flap down with a simple traditional staple..You could use anything...brad, eyelet, hole punch and ribbon...I personally like the clean & sleek look of the 'ole staple. I used my crocheted ribbon from J's {you know, the non-crunchy one}. See those puffy Thickers?? I ♥♥♥ Peachy Cheap...thanks Latisha for letting me in on that fabulous site!!

Okay, ready for the inside??!!!

Woot Woot!!!! I was cracking myself up when I put this together...those fabulous owlies are by Maya Road that I picked up at Two Peas....they are adhered with a tiny glue dot so that the recipient can, yes, use them in her cardmaking or layouts...whaddya think of that??!!!! I'll let you in on a secret...I'm taking my own advice and sending out my scor-it projects as RAKs...this Wild Aspargus Family card goes to this chick...or should I say owlie? She is going from a Party of 3 to a Party of 4 pretty soon and I thought this was a fun card to send her...I know I'm probably spoiling the surprise but it has gone postal and sometimes it takes her a smidge to blurf...

Be sure to check out the other DT members and everyone that used "Mr. Linky"...I've been having a ball'orama commenting on everyone's projects this week. Keep those fab cards/projects rolling in...Tomorrow is my day on the 365 Card blog...Be sure to take a peek, I hope that it inspires you...
