This card will be submitted for 3 challenges!!! I'll be using it for the Clean & Simple Sketch 113 challenge, the Off the Wall Craftiness Inspiration Colors challenge and the HYCCT - Handmade Embellishments challenge.
This is the challenge for the HYCCT challenge: I LOVE embellishments - especially those pretty packaged embellies that are everywhere on the market! But... let's face it. These pretty packages can get expensive! So, here's my challenge for you: MAKE an embellishment for your card! Maybe you could stack a couple of buttons and tie them with twine... or create custom ribbon by coloring it with markers? Stamp an image and back it with layers of cardstock to create your own 'chipboard' element. The sky's the limit!
Here are the sketch and colors that inspired this card:
And............Here is my C&S card:
I also have to show off this really cool paper that I used as the "green" strip behind the blocks and flowers. It has a holographic effect that you can't see above. I got it at the Scrap the Day Away I went to a few weekends ago at the Art Tech Supplies booth.
