Just A Note


Ok, so this card is proof that if you agonize over something long enough it works out. Sometimes. Here are my supplies:

DPs : assorted from my stash
Image: Sassy Cheryl
Colors: Prismacolor pencils and blending pen
Ribbon: Assorted
Buttons: Assorted from stash
Sentiment: stamp by TPC (I borrowed from a friend as my printer ran out of ink..)
Gems: Recollections

Here is a close up of the image...



And the flowers and my favorite stacked buttons...(you know buttons make everything better. Buttons and chocolate)




And here is the other flower with button threaded through with a green wire.
Ok. Now can we just pretend I was going for the whimsical ,funky, slightly irregular look with that wire? Thanks! :-)



This card fits three challenges:

Sassy Cheryl's (sketch)
Color Throwdown (colors green, pink, red and blue)
Penny's Papercraft (7 of something- I am using seven gems for my seven "notes" coming out of the bagpipe)

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

I love your coloring. Doesn't stitching a card add a bunch of pizazz?
