Yesterday’s “Way to Use It” challenge is to use "Staples". I have not used staples on any of my cards EVA! But, when I saw this challenge, I remember using my stapler back in the days just spelling words (that's what boredomRolling Eyes will do to you). Anyway, here is my way to use staples.

Bashful Blue card stock measures 5" x 10" and folded in half. I stamped the main image (Beehave from Penny Black) on Whisper White card stock using Staz-on Timber Brown and colored it Prima watercolor pencils, the bees' wings is covered with crystal stickles. I then matted it with Chocolate Chip card stock. The pattern paper is from Stampin' Up retired Timeworn collection, tide it with wide satin brown ribbon, and stapled spelling HI! Hello Thanks for stopping by and Happy Friday!
