Brackets

Hi!  Welcome to the last challenge of 2011 for Lily Pad Cards!  This week we are to use chipboard.  I found these brackets in my stash and covered them with paper to match my color scheme, trimming them out with a neat tool that I first saw Vicky use (see my supply list).

A rose among brackets

supplies: cream card base, printed papers from Hobby Lobby "The Paper Store", Hero Arts H5577 Classic Tea Rose, Versafine onyx black ink, pink and green markers and watercolor pencils, CL130 Frames and Messages, CL166 Special Friend, Memento Rich Cocoa ink, chipboard brackets from Darice Chipboard Tags and Frames, covered in Making Memories Willow Simple Sponge dp,  Fiskar's Precision Knife to trim paper around chipboard, Fiskar's Top Notch border punch, unknown orchid pink cardstock, pale pink embroidery floss

Once again, we're being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, and if you play along, you might win a gift certificate to their Superstore!
