Found Objects Challenge

Enfys over at Going Buggy has a cool March challenge this month - use something on your card that wasn't intended for cardmaking.  I was really jazzed by this.  It reminded me of when I first started scrapping and didn't want to pay so much money for all the fancy embellishments [ I'm still reluctant :-) ] so I would try to be "creative" with what I used as embellishments (not always successfully).

So as it is a rainy cold day here in the Dallas area, I jumped right in and found three objects:
1.  Red mesh bag from a bag of cheese snakcs - used for the "rosette"
2.  Washers - used on the ribbon and in the center of the rosette
3.  Black plastic screw hole cover from a flat pack shelving unit - used insode the washer in the center of the rosette

The papers are from a ColorBok paper pack; the cardstock is Bazzill Ruby Slipper, the very center of the rosette is Stickles silver glitter glue, and the ribbons are from Hobby Lobby.
