CTMH Perfect Day & A Couple of Challenges

This is my card for the sketch this week at Card Patterns. And I also incorporated this week's challenge from a brand new site called Practical Scrappers. I absolutely LOVE the concept of this new blog - which is basically to use up your stuff. Because, really, what papercrafter doesn't have a HUGE stash of STUFF!?!?! Each week the challenge will be to use a particular supply or tool! So much fun!! This week's challenge was to use 5 eyelets - - which was a BIG challenge for me because I'm not a fan of eyelets!! But I made it work!

This is my attempt at a close-up shot of the flowers - wanted to show you the "liquid glass" centers!! Not the best shot - but you get the idea!

Materials Used (all Close to My Heart)


  1. Love that liquid glass in the flowers! I never use mine. Great use of the eyelets. I so adore this pp, gorgeous card, as always...Thanks for playing this week at PS!
