This card qualifies for four challenges:
- Sugar Bowl - sketch
- Papertake - color combo
- Dutch Dare - cutting die or punch
- Daring Cardmakers - borders
I had one piece of yellow checked paper with little flowers on it. It is hard to imagine with all of the paper that I have that I only had one piece of this. Then, looking through all of the other papers to find a color match was a long process. I finally got everything all together and started coloring. (I always color my images after I have my paper so they will coordinate). Here is a close up.
I used my Martha Steward punch for the border on the left side and also on the inside. I then punched the squares for threading the ribbon using another punch. I added yellow ribbon and a flower. I punched leaves for the flower using a Martha Stewart punch. I just love what these leaves do to the flowers, they really make them stand out. I used Nestabilities to make the mat on the front and also on the inside.
The inside of the card has a sentiment that says 'when I count my blessings, I count you twice', a mat for writing and another flower.
