Today's MISM card is one that would prompt you to use the designer paper scraps that are lying around on your desk; however, if you're not the kind of paper crafts artist who typically creates in a state of piled up chaos, this project may not be all that snappy for you.  ;-)  My card features Stampin' Up!'s "Springtime Vintage" designer paper, which I love and can't stop using, and a pierced trail from the butterfly square to the sentiment.  To create a "pattern" for the piercing, I used a pencil to draw the shape of the trail, pierced the pencil drawing, and then used it as a guide on the Early Espresso card stock.  Other Stampin' Up! products used to create this card include Rose Red and Very Vanilla card stock, 1-3/8" and 1-1/4" square punches, crochet trim, "Easter Blossoms" and "Clearly for You" stamp sets, Mat Pack, and Scallop Edge Border punch.

Absolutely beautiful. I wasn't much on "vintage" but this paper and that stamp set have changed my mind. Your designs are just lovely. Thanks for sharing!

Excellent use of the little pieces of designer paper left behind that you're never quite sure what to do with. Your scallops are perfect.
