Practical Scrappers: Frugal Finds - Straws

Today at Practical Scrappers we are being frugal.  It's time for Frugal Finds!  And this month we are using straws!
 
Yes, drinking straws!
 
I made this card using my June Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin' Up!  If you haven't heard of My Paper Pumpkin, you should take a look.  It's a monthly kit that comes directly to your door for just $19.95 + tax!  Every month there is a different, fun project to make!
 
To create the Tangerine Tango circles, I used a drinking straw (from a Sonic drink...of course).  I dipped the end of the straw in the ink pad and stamped repeatedly.  I love that there is never a perfect circle...it's a fun distressed look!
 
Head on over to the Practical Scrappers blog to see what the other Design Team members did with straws today!
