{ 2 Sketches 4 You, Use It! challenge 4, Project 365 - Week 13 }

I used Kazan's sketch #23 for this week's Use It! challenge. I love going into my stash. I have so many beautiful papers that I haven't even touched.

The challenge: scraps of any kind, punches and/or die cuts, two or more different ribbons, one or more embellishments that you once loved and use a lot, but haven't used for a long time.

I used Making Memories and American Crafts patterned paper for my card and flowers. I used the scraps from the card to make the flowers. I used Fiskars apron lace punch and EK Success Swiss cheese punch. The second ribbon I folded and tucked between the flowers. Embellishments that I once loved and used are the big brads. I love the large flower and fabric covered ones by Imaginisce. The metal button is not really a brad, but it has 5 sharp prongs that poke through the paper and then I have to use a hammer to fold them back down. I bought them for a dollar somewhere and they are Marcella by Kay. I really like them and will have to use them again. I did not emboss anything this time, can you believe it?

I hope you check out the challenge and come and play with us!
