"Hinged" Card

I made some cool diecut hinges on my friend's Cricut a long time ago. They've been in a box of odds and ends that's been really accumulating. You know those things you start and then decide to go another direction altogether? Punches, diecuts, stamped images, cardfronts and embossed panels..... I don't want to throw them away. But, what do you do with them? Obviously, I am not good at going back and using these half-made creations. There are SO many at this point that I am going to need a fresh start! Maybe trade? That's an idea.
Okay.... enough thinking while I am typing.... Sorry about that. Back to the hinges.....
I remembered them as soon as I saw this awesome door stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs. I decided to pull them out and use them on this card.

I'm going to have to be short and sweet today. My "To-Do" List is so very long. And tomorrow I go to pick up my daughter from the airport! I'm looking forward to seeing my baby girl again!
Have a fabulous day, friends!

Fantastic card, Angel! Love those little hinge pieces! I have a box of random elements that I never seem to go back and use. But I can't bear to get rid of them either!
