Something Old, Something New

Have you seen the new blog, Use It! Challenges? Each Monday, they post a new challenge that incorporates materials all of us have in our stash! This week, the challenge is to use eyelets, something that's been in your stash for more than 1 year, and polka dots. Here's the fun card I came up with:



The sketch is from Mary Jo at TechnoStamper. It is Monday Lunchtime Sketch #62. I have not gotten one of these sketches done in months, and I'm glad to be back at it. Each week, she posts a great sketch to use!

I used some dp I picked up at my LSS last week - MME Kaleidoscope "Sunny Days" Stripe and "Sunny Days" Dots. The card base is Tangerine Tango and there is also some Soft Sky layered under the dots. The chipboard circles are the negatives from the Blossoms 1 Collection, inked with Colorbox Chalk inks. Eyelets are from my huge stash. The twill is stamped with Colorbox Chalk ink and a sentiment from Mocha Chica (CHF Kim Hughes Collection).

Time to got pick up DS from school. Thanks for looking!
