Shopping Our Stash Challenge #259- Say What? Use a Speech Bubble


Hello, Crafty Peeples!
  Once again, the lovely ladies at Shopping Our Stash have devised a plan to help  clear your crafting stash.  
SAY WHAT?
We are asking that you use a Speech Bubble.  Dive into those scrap tubs and make speech bubbles to your heart's content.  Be creative!  I decided to let my speech bubble Speak for itself.  Hubster says I get too deep sometimes! I am currently not speaking to him!  It won't last!

"Love Speaks"
I love the finish!  The copper color is rich and looks expensive! I like it much better than a foil finish for this type project!

Designer Paper  - 2yrs
Brads - 4yrs 
Lace - 2 yrs

  3. Ooh double-embossed! Never done it, now I gotta do it! Love the layout and copper color. Regarding sentiment, funny, if I'm catching your drift right! I was thinking it would be a good card for a passive-aggressive mother in law! 😂 (this is a card that could go to either a saint or the opposite!)
