Speedy Cat's Hat Pin challenge

I was visiting one of my favorite blogs, Simplicity by Susan and I saw that she stretched waaaaaaaaaay outside of her comfort zone and used a hat pin on a card.  She didn't do it because she "felt like it".  Oh no, she did it because that was the challenge given over at Mark's Finest Paper's Speedy Cat's Challenge #53!

So, I thought to myself ... if Susan can do it, surely I can too!  So I did!  Look at all that stuff on there.  Nothing really clean and simple about this card. 

The lovely designer paper is from Stella and Rose Gertie 6x6 paper pad (My Mind's Eye) and the sentiment is from Everyday Classics (Papertrey Ink). 

Now, I think I'll drop over to see what everyone else did with hat pins.  If Susan and I can do it you can too!! Wanna try???

Thanks for dropping by!

I like your thinking! Pins on a card are not my thing either, but I did it because that was the challenge. YOur card turned out beautifully, too! THanks for playing with Speedy's Friends. :)
