Today's card was inspired by a challenge on Inkurable Stampers to use eyelets.

I forgot about these cute Tulip eyelets. Think I bought them on ebay. I have a small bag of 100 in white pink and red!

After 'blowing' the dust of my stash of eyelets and brads I also found some small pastel green square eyelets. (looks blue in the photo)
I was excited when I re discovered the bag of pots and water cans brads!

I started with a white piece 4.5x3.5in card stock. Distress ink Tumbled Glass for sky.Darkroom Door Wildflowers VOL2 used for bottom layer and for flower stems.
'Hello' from String Sentiments set.

Matted this on a 5x4 black piece of card then a pink folded card.

No, I was not drinking at the same time! I chose to mat them on an angle for an interesting and fun look :)

Thank you Sarah for inspiring me to dig out my eyelets!

I feel another creation using eyelets coming soon :)
