Card using i-top Brad Maker

This was a fun card and pretty simple to make.  The background paper is from DCWV Natural Stack, this is such a pretty stack,  It is one of those stacks that you hate to use it "because you might run out", I find myself doing that somethings.  Then I have to give myself a talking to and tell myself now come on you bought it to use it.  LOL

The card is a 5 inch square card, kind of hard to see the edges because of the background that I used.  The scalloped squares are cut at 1 1/2 inches and cut from Sentimentals.  They were tags and had a small circle at the top but I "hid" it in Design Studio so that part would not cut out.  The black piece on the bottom I embossed with my Cuttlebug and the design kind of matches the paper design.  The top 3 circles are brads I made using i-top brad maker and the matching paper.  I love this thing but often forget to use it, I think it worked perfect here.  In case some did not know this but there is a cut on Accent Essentials that is the same cut as buying the i-top punches, it saves you money because then you don't have to buy them.  I find that it works best if I spray the paper lightly with water, that way they form around the brad better and leave a smoother finish. Hope you like it.
