USE It #16!

Yay time for one of my favorite challenges! USE IT!

This week the challenge is as follows...

1. Use something inspired by nature. (flowers, trees, animals, etc.)
I just had to break out my re-use die set by QuicKuts! This is a fantastic set!
2. Use polka dots.
Most of my cards have polka dots some where on them so this was easy!
3. Use your favorite embellishment.
I could limit my self to just one either so I went with... ribbon, jute twine
and my new wooden buttons!
4. Mail your creation to someone special.You'll make their day!
(Remember, you may need to add extra postage)
This is the toughest one for me... as my good friend Jewels once said I am a card maker not a giver!
I will mail this however!

New Beginnings!
Sorry for the poopy lighing! :) Oh and I did want to mention this was entirely outta scraps! Aren'tcha proud!
Stuff... Cardstock, Ribbon, Stamps, Ink, Twine and Button - Papertrey Ink, ReUse Dies - QuicKutz, Scallop Circle - Spellbinders, Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug!
