Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge # 22...Here and eyelyet, there an eyelet...You're such a Doll!!!

Hey Krafty friends!!! I am back with another post this morning! This is my Kraftin' Kimmie Challenges card! This week the super krafty and super duper sweet Michele has set the challenge...An eyelet here, an eyelet there...he he he! Well, I asked the "regulatory board" (aka the Krafty Girls) and we will accept snaps for this challenge as they fall under the eyelet category in the crafting code book,lol! I just made that up there isn't really a crafting code just sounded so official and all, he, he, he!!!
From the KKS Blog....One more important note! **This challenge will be open until April 2nd! We've been so busy with all the new stamps (I know, poor us!) that we're taking a Saturday off from the challenge, so this one will be open for TWO whole weeks! **
So I hope you can join us this week and remember if you use a Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp on your creation and link your post on the KKS Challenge blog then you will be entered into the random draw for the prize, which is the adorable, Lola Da Vinci, that is featured on Michele's adorable card!

So, I saw this tutorial to make a tent card on the JM Challenges blog that Dena created and it was a lot of fun and quite easy and quick to make! I love how it turned out and my hubby Chris really liked this card too which was nice of him to say...I did make a few errors as it was my first time making one but now I know what not to do, next time, smile! I sent sweet Charlotte here all the way to England to wish my BG DT member and sweet friend Tara W a very happy 40 th birthday!!!
I used American crafts cardstock, Crate paper called Paper Dolls, American Crafts ribbon, Prima flowers and a flower eyelet, a regular eyelet and some jumper rings to suspend Charlotte and then I used snaps in the centres of my Prima flowers. I just had to use sweet Charlotte with the Paper Dolls paper and I used one of the coordinating stickers and I even added a snap to the flower on the sticker! Charlotte is coloured with my Copics and then I cut her out leaving a white border around her. I used a lot of Sakura Startdust pen on Charlotte and spread it around with my finger...she is very sparkly IRL!

I put the "inside" sentiment on the back of the card and I used one of the great sentiments from the Kimmie's Everyday Sentiments set and I coloured and cut out the dolly accessory stamp that comes with Charlotte and pop-dotted her....oh and a few more snaps!
Well, thanks for popping by again today and I really hope you can join the challenge this week!
The Krafty Girls have really outdone themselves again! They have used the eyelets in their stash in such creative ways...I am sure you will be inspired to pull out the eyelets at the bottom of you stash and use them on a card!
Have a stampin' great day!
