Clip It Together at Tuesday Throwdown

Hi everyone! It is week 2 of my guest designer spot at Tuesday Throwdown and we have a fun theme for you, this time! The theme is "Clip It Together." We want to see projects made using a clip of some kind. Awwww, now no moaning and groaning! It's not as difficult as it sounds! (Although I admit - When I first heard the theme, I thought to myself, "What Am I Ever Going to do with a theme like this?!" LOL!) Beleive me here, its easier than you think! C'mon and take us up on the challenge and play along! You can do it! You really can! And we want to see it! Ther is a great prize up for grabs, from Sweet N Sassy Stamps, so that should give you even more incentive to play along! Come see us at Tuesday Throwdown and link up your creation, for your chance to win! While you're there, check out the DT projects for some added inspiration, too!

Now, onto the details of my project. I found that once I had my image ready to go, and chose what kind of "clip" I wanted to use, it was just a matter of choosing papers. Once I did that and got started it all came together pretty quickly and I was very happy with the results! Especially for a theme that I had no clue what to do with! LOL

My card layout uses the sketch at Seems A Little Sketchy. I used the image, Feathered Friends, from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. The image is colored with Promarkers. The papers are all from my stash. One was punched with a scalloped circle punch by Paper Shapers, and one punched by a frame punch from EK Success. (Gotta love punches and shapes! And, I admit, I'm a punch fanatic - There, I Said it!) I love the glittered details on the scalloped circle. I used a recycled blue funky shaped paperclip on the funkily punched piece of paper, and it gave it such a cool, even funkier, look! Love it! The buttons are also recycled, from old clothes that have long went to the trash. Baker's twine added to the buttons give them just the right added touch. I used some white tulle and made a bow, to add the finishing touch. (I know its a bit difficult to see in the pic - Its in the bottom left corner - A big bow, too! Be sure you don't miss it!)
