Hello!  I have just a quick post tonight to share a card I made combining several online challenges.  The current Lawnscaping challenge is to use dots and/or stripes.  I’ve used a stripey paper and a dotty paper for that.  At Retro Rubber Challenge blog, they are inviting their participants to use older stamps (at least a year old) and to incorporate a tag on their project.  The butterfly and the sentiment are from two of my older Lawn Fawn stamp sets.  As I was starting to put the tag on the card front, I noticed how much the card was resembling the current sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!  So I thought about what to do for the trio of banner elements, and decided to use these really old snap/rivet things I have.  Anyone else remember them?  On a card they look like brads, but they attach like eyelets.  Yes, I had some fun pounding them with my hammer, LOL.  Even though the colors and patterns aren’t my usual thing, I kinda like the way the card came together.
