Way To Use It Challenge

Melody was subbing in the Way To Use It Challenge on SCS today. She sure picked a "challenging" challenge for us -- to use corregated cardboard on our creation. She did give us a hint on how to remove one side of the cardboard. If you spray it with water and let it sit for a minute or two, it will peel right off. Guess what -- it worked!

After peeling off the one side of the corregated cardboard, I cut the Top Note shape, cutting off outside the dotted line. I mounted it on a piece of Regal Rose cs also cut with the Top Note die. The flower is from Rita Marie & Company's set Violet Garden, colored with Copic and Prismacolor markers. I cut out the violet and backed it with a Sizzix leaf diecut, accented with some Copics; then glued them both to the cardboard. I wanted to dress it up a little, so I added the brads at the top. I sponged around the white card base with Creamy Caramel.
