2sketches 4you #22, use it #2

This week at 2sketches4you. Laura, put up the sketch. I didn't get to play last week so, I made the effort to create a card this week. I think I forgot to mention....that Kazan picked one of my cards a couple challenges back as card of the week. Woohoo!! I was SO thrilled!! That said, I used the prize Kazan sent me for that week on this card. The mini Scor-it....I LOVE how easy it is to use!

This week Rae's (Use It) guest challenge hostess challenged us to use eyelets (something I RARELY do), use something that is at least a year old and use polka dots. That was easy enough. Graciousness, I've got some old stash. The checkered PP I used was copy wrote in 2003. I placed a gray eyelet in a corner of the heart and used polka dotted paper to cover the chipboard heart I've had for a couple years.

I just adore these rub-ons from K & Company.
Rub-ons are one of my favorite products.
They're quick and easy to use.

I added some paper piercing to the PP panel and a couple little borders. The scalloped border was created using decorative scissors. The ribbon is really cheap, stiff stuff. But I like the crisp white color. I trimmed the bow with pinking shears. The cream flower is a regular floral flower. I bought it in a bunch at HL. The chipboard heart is edged with white craft paint. The BG was created using a mini Scor-it. I also, used a corner rounder on all the corners. TSMFL!!

This is GORGEOUS Lori. I love it! Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my question about the paint the other day, sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. I don't really use rub ons, I might have to add that to my 'buy' list :o) I love the way you've used them, they look great :o)
