On her blog, Myrna frequently displays cards she has made from her POTD (Pile On The Desk).  She uses that abbreviation so frequently, she no longer feels the need to explain what it means; her readers know.  I can relate to the POTD. My desk is so overflowing that stuff slides off the sides.  This card was made from the SOTF.

The scalloped ruffle and the rosette are made from bits of packing paper.  The great thing about rosettes is that they don't look girly like flowers do and you can use them on masculine cards.  I had to layer two other ribbons on top of my orange ribbon to hide the stains on it.  The panels on the top are 1x4 inches, and the bottom piece is 1.5x4 inches, so you can see that these are fairly small bits that I can't bear to throw out.  Even skinnier strips get saved for ATCs.  It's a good thing that the stamps in the snail&co stamp set from a•muse studio are so small!

This is so cool, Juliet! I LOVE the little sentiment and your different panels that you've stamped! The colors look fabulous together! :) If you have time, I'd love for you to play along with our challenges at Inkspirational and Technique Time Tuesday! :) HUGS!

Hallo aus Österreich !

Deine Karte gefällt mir sehr gut. Die Farben und die Machart. Nicht zu streng, trotzdem masculin.

Thanks for the great mention. :)
Later today or tomorrow I will show what happened to the POTD; also the SOTF at my house. LOL
Love your card.
I agree; rosettes can be for males too. They all seem to enjoy getting a red or blue ribbon in competition.

LOL! I challenged myself to work out your abbreviation without visiting Myrna's blog, I love it,stuff on the floor, I have so much on my floor I could make a collection ;) If I could make anything as gorgeous as your card I'd be happy! So glad you joined the Southern girls challenge this time, if you hadn't I'd never have seen it! Have a lovely weekend,Julie.x
