Embellish Challenge-Calling All Brads!

When I found out about the Embellish challenge (see here), I thought I should get the brads out to play
I had SO many of them and they have been sitting in my craft box for the longest time. I love the ease of embellishing a card/page with brads! You poke a hole, stick it in and voila! This is my happy card! I think I can use one any time of the year...It reminds me of childhood-fun and fancy free.

I used 8 brads in this card....that's the most that I have ever used in one card :)


Stamps : Hero Arts Stripe Circle, Raindop Background
Others: Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Making Memory brads, Stickles, CB (scallop circles, inverted scallop circle)

Thanks for stopping by!
