Because

This is a card idea I've had in my head for a couple weeks.  And I think it turned out pretty much like how I thought.  I won these cork pieces a while ago, and I thought I would never use them.  As you can see, they are kind of large for card making and I didn't really have any idea what to do with them.  But as they sat on my desk I began to have this idea that they would make a really fun bulletin board.  So, that's what I did.  I stamps the "Because" and drew the border along the outside edge.  It kind of looks like something that would be hanging in a bedroom, right? I stamped the notebook image and "pinned" it to the bulletin board.  I used paper that reminded me of wallpaper and added a "border".
What do you think?  A fun idea or what?
