Cave Girl...Grrrr....

I love this image from The Paper Nest Dolls and just had to have it when it appeared in their Etsy Store. I do need some dinosaur or cavegirl/man related sentiments though as my brain went blank thinking of one today! Anyway this card is for The Paper Nest Dolls challenge to use eyelets or brads. I used both - I could swear I have a pot of SU neutrals eyelets somewhere as I wanted to use black ones instead of the brads but could I find the pot?! I checked all my drawers and my box of retired SU products but could not find it anywhere. No idea where that has gone. Shows how often I use eyelets though! But on the upside I found lots of glittery and gemstone brads in my box instead!

This card is also for In The Pink's Challenge #50 Anything Goes, Fab 'n' Funky's Challenge #225 to be inspired by a movie (guess which mine is?), Live and Love Crafts Challenge for August to use stitching (I hand stitched round the edges of the patterned papers) and for Crafty Sentiments challenge to add a sentiment.

And here she is... Did you guess my movie? Had to be The Flintstones with this one!
