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!!

supplies:
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!)
