This week at House Mouse &Friends, our Teamie Heather is hosting and she chose:
 Apertures - also known as a openings on projects.
Stamps: Stampabilities, House Mouse Designs, from 2008, called "Smarty Pants", featuring Amanda, #HMJR1078. The verse/sentiment is also by Stampabilities, called "Everything I know", #NR1023. The frame has ribbon around both edges, a bow and behind sentiment sides on bottom. School themed brads and tiny rhinestones finish off this card. :)

AND just to make sure I did this "Aperture" thing correctly, I made a 2nd card with an actual Circle Center hole created with the negatives of Spellbinders Circle Cuts, layered & placed descending to reveal the HM image at bottom. I also added pierced holes around the edges of the card (just in case my center didnt count as an aperture) LOL.
Stamps: Stampabilities, House Mouse Designs, from 2008, called "Spooktacular Flower", featuring monica, #HMF1019. The verse/sentiment is also by Stampabilities, called "Spook-Tacular", #QR1033.
