Fortune Cookies - MTME Pretty Patterns 07

Hello again!  It's time for another My Time Made Easy Pretty Pattern!  This week's sketch is perfect for a long card!  However, thanks to a massive migraine, I didn't get to stamp a long one and had to get mine done in about 15min.

I decided to use some pre-stamped and pre-colored images from MTME's So Fortunate set.  I love fortune cookies!  It's a good thing too since my family loves Panda Express.  I had decided some time ago I wanted to find a way to recycle those paper fortunes found in fortune cookies.  MTME's So Fortunate set makes recycling super easy!!

Once I had picked out the colored two different fortune cookies I wanted, I trimmed one set down to size and then pulled out my dusty Fiskars wave scissors and snipped a bit off of the bottom before sponging some Stampin Up! barely banana and bravo burgundy inks around the edges.  Once that was done, I cut out another set of fortune cookies for popping up later.

Once I had my main images set to go, I pulled out some vanilla ribbon I received from a secret sister and tied a couple of knots around the card before adding my image panels and cut outs making sure to pop everything up for added dimension. 

Taking a dusty Stampin Up! flower trio punch and some scrap burgundy card stock, I punched out a bunch of flowers to layer along the bottom of my fortune cookie saying (and to cover up the restaurant name since it looked tacky otherwise).  Pulling out some Stampendous Class-A-Peel stickers from my stash, I added some bling to the centers.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I really hope you'll play along with us at My Time Made Easy Pretty Patterns.  Have a great day!!
