An oops kind of card.....

When I was working on my card for the upcoming challenge at
I was super pleased with my results.
Since this Saturday will be the Super Scraps challenge,
I just went to town with what was in my scrap pile.
And then...
**Insert the sound of screeching brakes.**
I remembered that we have a special sponsor this week.
Back to the drawing board I went.
(You'll need to come by on 14 Dec 2013 to see who the sponsor is.)

I so happy with the card I made for that challenge, albeit in error, that I couldn't possibly not share it with you.
So here it is:

Every bit of paper and ribbon that I used in this card was a bit of scrap.  Even the card base was left from another project.

I've seen this concept all over Pinterest and just love the elegant simplicity of the design.  When I noticed that I had a pretty large scrap of the Mirrored Reflective Cardstock from Paper Temptress, I knew that my ornament would have a shiny silver base.

The ornament shape was cut using my Cricut Expression and the Create a Critter 2 cartridge.  The sentiment is from a Recollections set.  The ink used was Colorbox Chianti.  All of the ribbons were tiny snippets from my stash.

This was such a simple card to make and I'm so in love with the results, I have no doubt I'll be making more of these!
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my oops kind of card.
Enjoy the rest of your day!
