They aren't called Go-To-Gals for nothing!!

LOOK!!! Isn't this card the most elegant thing ever?! I love it so much!! What makes this card really rock are the stickpins! I've been seeing elegant stickpins all over in "blogworld" these days - Want to know where I got them? I made them!
I was looking through the blogs I regularly browse when I read today's entry at Papercrafts Connection - Go-to-Gal Teri Anderson is one of my favorites - her work is so original and inspiring - so much so that I was inspired to make my very own stickpins after reading about how she did it!!
This cool sketch came from 2sketches4you - it is the first time I've done one of their sketches. If you read my blog much you know this - "Hi. My name is Michelle and I am a sketch-aholic." Honestly, I would've never thought of a card layout like this, would you? The stamps on this card are from A Muse (6-5066J Modern wood block, Monogram Frames clear stamp set), the paper is from an old book and the lace is from Wal-Mart (can you believe it??) - Have fun and try something new.

Hi Michelle!
There is a big smile on my face seeing this. I am just tickled you were inspired to play.
Your card is beautiful. And your pins are "awe" worthy.
Hope you are having a good day!
Thanks again for the big smile!
