2Sketches4You and Use It Challenges

I took some time today to make cards based on the sketch blogs I like to visit.

this first one is from the sketch at 2sketches4you- it's been toooo long since I've had a moment to do a sketch from them and I miss doing them! so I wanted to make sure I did this weeks!
I used some Scenic Route papers, white paper embossed with my cuttlebug swiss dots folder, my Martha eyelet border punch, and an OLLLLLDDDDD Basic Grey tag. I added some bobunny dot cardstock, that I punched some Martha bflies with, and mike's pearls along with Amer. Crafts thicker glitter letters ( love these letters!) then they are. topped it off with some crafty ribbon and MM tiny type letters.
This card I made with the Use It! challenge. the challenge was to use
eyelets
something one year or older
polka dots

well I found this pretty Basic Grey tag, I think it's a few years old! and the white WRMK eyelets are also more then 1 year old. I cut the bfly out of my Cricut- using the paper doll cart- angel wings. added lots of faux stitching, and more of the glitter letters from AC. the cardstock is some bobunny and some DCWV, both the teal cardstock and the tag have the polkadots! this was a fun card to make!


have a great day!
