52CCT: Eyelets

Eyelets.  Have you used them recently?  I haven't!  I'm pretty sure the last time I used them was...a really long time ago. ;)  Anywho, that's the embellishment we are looking for this week over at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown!!!

Inspiration~

My card~

Details~



I've used 8 eyelets on the card and given my Crop-a-dile some well deserved exercise!  I think that I need to start using eyelets more...now that I remember how to USE my Crop-a-dile! ;)  But my favorite part of this card?  The poinsettias in the image.  I LOVE the way they turned out with just a hint of pink color and a rhinestone center!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.  Please mosey on over to the other DT gals' blogs to say hi and tell them how amazing their cards are, too!  Merry stamping! :)

This looks a fun challenge Mynnette! I love the way you've used non-traditional colours here and the wood panel looks fantastic with the swirly paper. Vicky x

Love your choice of colors for this card. And the stamp is colored very pretty, and you dressed it up well with the rhinestones! I have this stamp set and have yet to use it, lol. Maybe I'll get it out soon!

Oh my goodness - you used 8 eyelets on this card - and sooo beautifully too! You are my crafting hero :o) Seriously Mynnette I love, LOVE, love this card - especially the colors you used (pink is my personal favorite for Christmas cards). I agree, the poinsettias are the best part (in addition to the 8 eyelets). Hugs!
