365 Cards Day 87 'The Eyes have it' ~ Use It - Recipe & Stamp Something Challenge


I have wanted to use this sketch from Stamp Something for some days. When I saw the challenge from 365 cards today the two things came together. I also realised that nearly all the elements that I was using were in line with Use It's challenge this week, so I was feeling really pleased with myself.
However, when I came to write the posting, I realised that I made made a fundamental error... for Use It the card is supposed to be square! Whah, whah!
Anyway on to the card. For 365 I must have the word 'eye' on the card. No easy feat. I looked up the word 'eye' in an online dictionary to see if it would give me inspiration, and once I had thought of this lovely flower I was away.
I think that the sentiment is perfect for this card, it reads.. 'Heaven is under our feet, as well as over our heads'. Perfect except for the fact that it was wood mounted and the rubber has been stuck on cock-eyed, so that was where my DIY Lego Stampamajig came in very handy once more. Although the sentiment is cut out, I couldn't bear it if it was not straight with the grain of the card.
I'm sorry about the shape of the card for the Use It challenge, but I thought you might like to see it anyway!
