OWH Birthday Bash 2011: use eyelets JUST SAYING HELLO CARD

OWH is having a Birthday Bash this month and they are having some challenges. This challenge is to use eyelets. I had started this card last night and tonight when I sat down and seen it.. I knew right away I would use a large eyelet as a tire swing and then added the sentiment... I really like how it turned out.

I got some new dies a week or so ago at a local stamp store and wanted to put them to use. The dies are from Memory Box and are called: Twiggy Tree and Leafy Canopy.

I used a sentiment from a Hero Arts set.. it's out of it's original packaging so I don't know the name of it.

Stampin' UP! Early Espresso and Certainly Celery card base and layer, GP White and the pattern paper I think is from My Mind's Eye. I used a micro pen to draw the line from the eyelet to the tree branch.

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them
