This card was made in such a rush, I had so little time this week and wanted to make one so very badly… I tried another challenge, to get me going. This time I turned to Paper Play Challenges on their 38 week challenge- Coffee and Cream. The only restriction was to create an all brown card. Now, I love brown, I match it as an accent color with pink, green, blue… you name it. BUT I never use it all by itself. So there’s a real challenge for me right there.
To make it just a little more challenging, I used a sketch as well – from the Just Add Ink site, on their 36th challenge.
In addition, I submitted the card to the Carisma Cardz Challenges blog, on it’s challenge #38- Anything Goes.
The card base is craft card stock, and on top of it I’ve layered several textured card stocks. The ribbon is a deep velvety brown shade, gathered at the bottom of the card. The tiny butterflies are also made of craft, as I wanted a very delicate and light decoration on that side. The Stampin’ Up! stamp says: “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough”. Hmmm… There you go – some (kitsch) philosophy for the road…
Have a great week
