Caardvarks Micro Challenge Part Deux

Okay, while I was using eyelets I was inspired to create just one more card. I finally broke out my crop-a-dile this past week and I am still getting the hang of it. Does everyone's eyelets get all torn up on the back? I like my old fashioned Making Memories set because the eyelets look cleaner and seem to sit better on the back. But of course we all know how loud that is. Maybe I am not using it right??? I have the thing set for 1/8", at least I think I do. Any suggestions?

Well, anyway, while my kids enjoyed their Friday night movie and hubby was relaxing on the couch, I decided to give the eyelets another try. I needed another Birthday card, so I used the Papertrey Butterfly Kisses set to create this one. The paper is Basic Grey Blush and the white is PT Stamper's Select.

I used Versamagic Dew Drops in Pixie Dust and Sahara Sand. The scallop piece is created with Wave decorative scissors. I pierced some butterfly trails and the scallops at the bottom, distressed the edges a bit, and finally tied on a bit of twine for a little something. The scalloped piece is up on dimensionals to create an overhang. Of course the eyelets are Making Memories.

There you have yet another entry to the Caardvarks Micro Eyelet Challenge. Now gotta get it on there on time; I have 15 minutes - UGH!

Have a fab weekend!
