Card with Eyelets

It's Thursday and time for a new challenge over at  Outlawz Twisted Thursday, we have the optional twist of "use brads and/or eyelets" this week. Our sponsor for January is Bugaboo.

I used an image from Bugaboo with a young footballer. I colored him with Promarkers and stitched the panel with white thread. I attached it to an embossed striped background. I decided to use the option of eyelets for my card, so I attached 2 in each corner and used them to decorate with a frame of twine. I used a tag to add a birthday greeting and a footbal metal charm.

I'd also like to enter my card in these challenges:
1) I love Promarkers - #252 Hobbies
2) Addicted to Stamps - #95 Use a Tag On Your Creation
3) My Time to Craft - Stripes

Great idea to make a decorative frame with eyelets and twine, Pia! It looks so well on the red embossed striped! Love the stiched frame and the metal charm gives a pretty touch to the cute image. A perfect card for a young boy!

Pia, How creative you are with the eyelets, adding twin and then ending it with a tag, sentiment, charm and bow. I have to remember this. Bugaboo has so many daring images and he is a cutie. Really nice job.
Hugs, Pat/♥

Hi Pia - the way you framed that sentiment with the twine and eyelets is pure genius!! You just clean and simple to a whole new elegant level. Hugs D
