Dilly Beans Brads or Eyelets Challenge

It's Friday, which means it's time for a new Dilly Beans Challenge.  This week we want to see Brads or Eyelets.  I tried my own version of the "spotlight technique" using both #504 Noah's Winter Hat and #505 Noah's Warm Winter Wishes Framed.   First I printed Noah on white card stock.  Then, in my Printmaster Pro Program I resized the framed verson to fit perfectly over the first digi which gave me a sentiment.  The uncolored version was embossed with an older Cuttlebug folder and I've added brads and some glitter acetate on top of random snowflakes.  The framed "spotlight" was colored with Copics and glittered with Stickles and I found a teeny button brad for his coat.  I used deckle edge sicissors to cut out the frame and popped it for dimension.  Stop by the Dilly Beans Challenge Blog for more inspiration and come play along.

I'm also adding this to the CCEE Stampers embossing and Glitter Challenge, Creative Knockouts Snowflakes, 613 Avenue Create ATG, and Holly Jolly Warm Christmas Challenge and ABC Christmas Challenge W is for Winter Wishes.
