a PP challenge!!

This is a card I made for Thursday challenge of Ways To Use was a little tricky for me! I really had to struggle to make this and I am still not really sure I am loving it! You had to use only patterned paper...the only plain piece could be the card base! aren't supposed to even use any plain white! So here is what I did... I used my Jersey Shore paper. I used all my circle punches and cut out a bunch of the flowery sunburst type images from the paper. I colored in some of them with my blender pens. I backed them with the scallop punch which I punched and then turned the scallop slightly and punched again to get the pointed edges to match the image! {confused yet} I then added eyelets and brads to the centers. As I was starting to put the card together it reminded me of a bunch of is the card! Not my favorite but I do love the paper so it has grown on me a little since I made it! :) {sorry he lighting isn't great in this was cloudy and rainy outside!} Thanks for checkin' in! Have a fabulous weekend!
