Use It! #15

Hi everyone! One of my best friends just got engaged, so I thought I'd send her a little congrats card :) I've been SO tight on free time this week w/ craft night, a retirement dinner and graduation, so this is not my best card, but I hope she and her fiance like it. I based it off this week's Use It! challenge, hosted by Roseanne:

1/Use patterned paper scraps you've had
for more than 1 year!
check! The red polka dot paper is K&Co.
2/Use chipboard
check! Polar Bear Express- I used the negative image.

3/Use paint
check! I don't often use paint, but I used some pink paint by Making Memories.
4/Use a rub-on
This was hard for me because I already had two sentiments, so I settled on an American Crafts doodle, but it didn't work out too well on the painted surface. It made everything a bit shiny, so I'll know not to do that again! :)

I also used some ribbon by target, and an epoxy tag and a clip (it says "love" but it didn't photograph well) by Making Memories.

I hope to have a bit of "me time" this weekend, so I can send off my July 4th cards. I also bought some adorable buckets for my co-workers that I'm going to fill w/ chocolate covered pretzels. :D

Thanks for stopping by!
