Treasure Your Friends

This is a card I made for two challenges:  a color combo challenge by Laurie and Heather's sketch challenge.

The color challenge was to use these colors on a card:  Turquoise, Brown, Kraft & Ivory.  This is one of my FAVORITE color combos (I'm sure you've probably noticed)!  I'm not very happy with how the colors photographed (they aren't this harsh in real life and they really do all match). 

Here is the sketch I was going off of:



And, here's my card (a little blurry too, sorry about that)






I used the flower punch to punch out two different patterns of paper and then crumpled them up.  Then, I adhered them, slightly off center with glue dots and added the button with scrapper's floss on top. 

I tried a new adhesive this time and it stick well and fast...too fast.  Thus, my top layers are crooked.

Hope you're staying warm!  We're heading for a hard freeze and am so tired of it being cold all the time! :)

  4. I'm amazed no-one has commented on your FABULOUS curvy bottom (ahem...now I know why...!!!) I love how you changed the shape to a bracket-y thingie - was that a punch? Free hand? Very inspiring!
