Use It! challenge #3

Heidi Van Laar (a favorite card maker of mine) has posted a challenge at the new Use It! challenge blog. She is challenging everyone to use 1) eyelets, 2) something at least one year old, and 3) something w/polka dots on it...just for fun.

Tonight I painted some eyelets. These were originally orange. Bright orange. Once they were dry, I added them to the Scenic Route chipboard. Then I covered them w/glossy accents by Ranger and immediately added the gems to the centers. The cardstock is Kraft & s*e*i, the patterned paper & die cut are also SR. American Crafts makes the thickers & ribbon. There is also a rub on by Autumn Leaves.

Eyelets - check.
Polka dots - check.
Something a year old - check, check, check. LOL!!

Thank you, Use It! girls for this fun challenge.
