Use It! #3

Heidi won last week's challenge, so she got to pick the criteria for this week:
- Use some eyelets (because I know you all still have some).
-Use something more that 1 year old.
- And just for fun, use something with polka dots!
I feel like I lost my "mojo" this week, and I'm not really pleased with this card, but I don't know why. It's just not my best card but I'm posting it anyway. The green paper is by My Mind's Eye, the pink is Stemma and the birthday paper is a scrap I've had *forever* so that's my something-more-than-1-year-old piece. :) The flower shaped chipboard is by Maya Road and the rub-on sentiment is American Crafts. I used my new EK Success border punch and the epoxy cupcake sticker (another item I've had forever) is by American Traditional (I think?). Everything else is Making Memories, including the orange paint I used on the chipboard. It's funny how I used 12 eyelets but when I looked back at the container, it didn't look like I used any at all! That's the thing with eyelets- they go on and on and onnnnn! :) Anyway, maybe you'll like this card more than I do, but either way, thanks for checking in!

-Suzanne :O )

I ♥love♥ how you added the eyelets to the chipboard piece, sooo clever!! {and I agree about never seeming to make a dent in the eyelet stash!! ;)}

What are you talking about Suzanne!?! your card is SWEET! I really like how you put your eyelets on the chipboard and I love that punch!! You are going to "force" me to go shopping! : )

Great job "using it"!!

Ooh, I love this card too! So fun and fabulous...really great colors!

I personally believe my eyelets are procreating when my back is turned...just a theory.
