May Stamp of the Month - Just Sayin' Cardabilities Inspired Card

I love the playful shapes from the May Stamp of the Month, and I wanted a way to have some fun with them. This sketch from Cardabilities got my mind whirling with ideas, so I ran with it...

Inspiration: Cardabilities sketch and the retired Laughing Lola collection (for whatever reason, I really wanted to work with those colors)

Technique: I created two scalloped borders by stamping the circles in a row, and then cutting them in half. I also stamped the squares and cut them in half to create a small border under the sentiment. The solid black shape also creates a nice backdrop for the sentiment. 

Fun Fact: Laughing Lola Gold looks suspiciously like Flaxen, which was introduced shortly after Laughing Lola retired. Coincidence? 

As always, the Stamp of the Month can be yours for $5 with a $50 purchase. Get yours today on my websiteBut remember, it's only available until May 31st!
