Round 4 Gallery Idol!

Hello!  Hope your Monday has had a great start!  I am here with Round 4 of Paper Crafts Gallery Idol!  I am beyond thrilled and blessed to be one of the Top 10! 



 This time the challenge was to use a household item on your card!  What a challenge!  I thought and thought and thought and decided to use Plastic Spoons!



I broke the handles off of the spoons and glued them to a die cut circle.  Paint is a big trend right now with paper crafting and I was happy to finally use it!  LOL  I painted the spoons a hot pink!  I added a My Mind's Eye Indie Chic decorative sticker in the middle to make it a flower!  I than stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts Studio Calico set "My Happy" on some coordinating pp.  I added a cabochon flower in the middle!  I also used the coordinating paper from the Indie Chic line for the card, love this pattern! Adhered it to a kraft card!  Pink, orange and brown are  my all time favorite color combination!  

It was really fun to use a household item on my card!  I think the spoons look like a petal of a flower!  My goal was to still make a pretty card with a household item and I think I achieved it! 

I hope that you like my card and really hope that you vote for me!  It would be a dream come true to make it to the Top 5!!!!





Supplies used:

Bazill Cardstock
My Happy Set by Hero Arts
