Fire up the Grill Card for SSD#126

I haven't played along over at Skipping Stones Designs' challenge in a while, but when I saw the sketch this week, I knew it would be the pefect challenge to try out one of my new toys.  I recently won Nina Yang's birthday blog candy - an American Crafts' Knock Outs set.  It's a really neat little system, and allows you to cut a variety of borders.  I've been playing around with it, so expect to see lots more fun edges and borders on stuff.

Anyway, I thought I would put the scallop insert to good use and created this simple card.  I used a couple stamps from CTMH's Summer Days set, some Christmas ribbon from Michael's, and a little Twinery twine. 

I did actually get to do a little bit of scrapbooking yesterday (National Scrapbooking Day) a well as tonight, so I should have another layout to share soon.

Hope you all had a great weekend!
