Tall and skinny?

The Mojo Monday sketch challenge this week is to create a tall and skinny card.  I've had a bunch of long, thin card blanks for quite a while.  Someone gave them to me and I just never really used them as I don't have envelopes to fit.  But for Christmas I got the Envelope Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers, so now I don't have an excuse not to use those blanks.  My card is not tall and skinny, but it is long and skinny.  I had to use some items from my "bits and pieces" stash and they fit better when I flipped the sketch.  After making my the card in my previous post I had two items to add to the bits and pieces stash, and the point is to eliminate it, not add to it.  So, I had to figure out a way to use the two ovals that I had cut out.  The sentiment oval was already in the stash, and the plaid oval was perfect for a frame, I just needed to trim the black to fit in between.   Also, the two little black flourishes were in the stash.  Yeay, it's getting much smaller.  Of course, now it's going to get harder, too, since I'm using up the "good" stuff. : )
