Everything but the kitchen sink challenge

I am so glad that I have found so many great blogs, they are not only inspirational but I am always finding a NEW challenge!! I love doing a challenge or two a week, maybe that sounds a little much but I have become a little obsessed with card making. I guess as a SAHM I need something to work my brain and a challenge sure does that for me! Anyway today I stumbled across a neat new challenge "EVERYTHING BUT THE KITCHEN SINK CHALLENGE" !! You should really check it out!


The deets of the challenge this month were to use something from the mail as part of your card or scrapbook page! I knew this would be a challenge for me, but I love a challenge!! I was super excited to get my mail today, but when it came it was only coupons and advertisements for hardware stores! I was bummed, but decided to take a second look at them and found this:
Here is my card. I used a paper studio pre-folded card, PTI bitty dot paper pti dark chocolate cardstock, bazzill yellow, colorbox brown, fiskars threading water punch and of course my mail. I know the arrangement is maybe a little off, but it is a lot better than I thought it would be! Hope you enjoy and give the challenge a try!
