Use It! Challenge #16

I just love the challenges at Use It! They encourage you to use the scraps and supplies we are hoarding to create something gorgeous!

This week we were challenged by Kay to:
  • Use something inspired by nature
  • Use polka dots
  • Use your favorite embellishment
  • Mail your creation to someone special!
Her list was easy to work with as I love nature and polka dots! Here is my card.

For something inspired by nature I added a flower by BoBunny and a chipboard butterfly from Heidi Swapp. The polka dots are on the ribbon and for my favorite embellishment - it had to be a button! Anyone who knows me knows how much I love to add buttons to my creations!!!

I used a stamp from CTMH for the sentiment and Kaiser Craft Pearls on the butterfly. The paper is from MLYB and the cardstock is Coredinations.

I am going to mail my card to my Mom. I think of her often each day and I miss her all the time. It is hard that we are 3 hours apart and I don't get to see her as much as I would like to. I hope my card will remind her how much she is thought of and loved.

There is still time to play along! Just go to Use It! and post your card there. It's alot of fun!

Have a wonderful day!
