Papertrey stamps & MIM #55

I am SO excited and happy. How often does it happen that someone offers you a whole stamp set for free. Thanks to Lee, a new card-friend, I got the PTI 3rd anniversary set called Round & Round (to see what the set looks like see http://forum.papertreyink.com/forum/gallery2.php?g2_itemId=105763). (Unfortunately these anniversary sets are not for sale but are 'earned' through rewards for purchases done at PTI. So how lucky am I?)
The Make It Monday challenge this week was very interesting. And I can't believe how long I struggled to put this card together once I had the frame done. (That was the easy part!).
The frame behind the circle was made by stamping TWO of the Calendar Bits & Pieces rectangular frame on top of one another (as shown in this video: http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2012/02/make-it-monday-55-creating-large-frames-with-smaller-frame-stamps.html). The original frame can be seen in my previous post HERE.
The rest of it is all PTI's Round & Round set.

  6. What a clever choice for your frame-I know what you mean about it taking so long to finish the card after conception-I did the same thing. Yours turned out beautifully! Congrats on the free stamp set-I would love to have that one!
