Hooray, I Used Designer Hardware

A good friend gave me a package of Hooray Designer Hardware and it’s just been sitting on the shelf all this time. I decided to use the big owl eyelet when I saw Kristina Werner’s latest color inspiration challenge (#50!), which included yellow and turquoise. I had a hard time incorporating all of the colors on my card though, especially the brown.

I cut a circle out of Whisper White card stock and stamped the groovy flower from the Wow Flowers set with Tempting Turquoise and Chocolate Chip ink. Then I punched two circles out of Real Red and Yoyo Yellow card stock, glued them together and set the eyelet with the Crop-A-Dile. Real Red grosgrain ribbon was pulled through a white jumbo grommet and tied into a knot.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Vera, this card is fantastic! I really like how you’ve been using the jumbo grommets with the ribbon tied through. I’m wondering how the grommet is secured? Is the knot of the ribbon simply large enough to keep it in place? … or are the prongs of the grommet poking through the ribbon and cardstock? I’ve tried both and can’t seem to figure it out.
