Using Brads For Scrap Your Crap!

The Summer is flying by and already it's time for another challenge from Scrap Your Crap!
This month we are using brads and/or eyelets- and I chose brads :-)
Here is the card I made, and I found the rhinestone brads to be the perfect finishing touch:

The two patterned papers I used are some of my very favorite prints I think Stampin' Up! has ever made. They are both from the (retired) Parisian Breeze Specialty collection. Matched with SU! Chocolate Chip and PTI white card stock, it's really a gorgeous combination. Both patterned papers are textured, and I also used an embossing plate for my top white layer. With the beautiful combination of colors, patterns and textures, I am really pleased with how this card came out. 

So now it's your turn! Head on over to the Scrap Your Crap blog and check out all the other cards and scrapbook pages our design team has made to inspire you, and then create something of your own! And please be sure to share it with us! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I know I have not been posting much as the Summer is keeping me super busy with school out for all these fabulous, fun weeks! But before long, school will be back in session and you'll be seeing a LOT more of me here! And really soon I will be sharing more about all that I have planned for my crafting future.... I have a lot I have been working on and am getting ready to share all the details with you very soon. I am so excited and can hardly tell you all about it :-)
Until then, I wish you a wonderful remainder of the Summer with many blessings!
