Every now and again I like to shake things up on a Monday and have a guest create the Monday Card Madness. Today you’ll find that one of my “go-to” girls, Misty Buck has not only created an amazing and unique style of card, but she has totally made today’s steal, the American Crafts, The Classics Collection shine.

I admit that I’ve never seen a kick stand design of a card before. I love the sketch and can’t wait to try it out myself.

I love the variety of patterns and rich colors of today’s steal. Misty’s has done such an incredible job putting together the papers and embellishments to create these gorgeous cards.
