H2H Challenges: Picture My Life

This week @ Heart 2 Heart Challenges, we're asking you to use the Picture My Life or My Crush products in a unique way. If you don't have either of them, you could always make your own!  I decided to use pieces of the Skylark PML collection to create a card.  Here are the three cards I selected:
  
And the back of those same cards: 
With the addition of the a piece of 4"x6" green card stock from the Skylark paper pack and Lagoon houndstooth washi tape, here is the card I made:
The front of the card is the 4"x6" Skylark Picture My Life piece.  You may notice the extra pennants that I made with pieces of the smaller cards and the bronze shimmer trim and triangle Durables studs for interest and texture.
 To make the two pieces into a card, I laid them on my work space side by side, inside of the card up, edges touching.  I tore off a piece of the Lagoon washi tape and adhered the two pieces together down that center seam.  I repeated the washi tape binding on the outside too.
 Of course I rounded the corners of the card stock piece and the sentiment frame to match the shape of the PML card.  The inside was pretty plain, so I added two bronze shimmer trim circles (from a standard hole punch) to jazz it up without bulk.

In case you're wondering, here is all that I have left if those 3 original Skylark PML cards:

Be sure to visit the H2H blog and check out our designers' inspiration this week.  This particular PML/My Crush challenge will extend through 8/2, but all of the other July challenges close on Thursday.  Join us!

Cute! I'm getting more and more fond of washi tape. I would not have thought of using it to hold the card pieces together.

What a cute mini album! I have been having a play with them this week and made one for my nephew's birthday, so thanks for the inspiration.
