Card Recipe!

Day 55 at 365 Cards was to use a recipe provided to us by Pam. Here's the recipe we had to follow:

5x5 card (solid colored card stock - may be smooth or textured)
4x4 patterned paper (you may alter the edges if you'd like)
1 shape (circle, square, star, heart, etc.) - must be solid color
3 jewels
alpha stickers

No other items could be used!! Well........I made a little mistake! I used 3 star brads instead of jewels. I didn't realize we needed to use jewels until I was writing up this post....sorry!!! When I read the recipe, my brain saw the word brads.....LOL!!! I'm not going to change it now!!

American cardstock
Scenic Route print paper
alphas from JoAnn
brads and chipboard star from my stash
green paint
EK border punch (I treated myself to a bunch of new punches this week!)

I think the star brads add to the theme as you have use a big star. Luv the colours on the card.
