Embellish Magazine and you have to also use the colour combination along with a label on your card. When I realized the deadline is today I had to get things in gear fast!!
I paired this challenge with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. I haven't participated in one of Mercy's sketch challenges for a while so it felt wonderful to be able to do so again :)
I substituted a butterfly for the circle on the sketch, used my Martha Stewart Daisy border punch to add a fun border along the bottom of the main image panel, and used my beloved crutch, Swiss Dots embossing folder, for some texture on the background panel. Brown half pearls and a button on the butterfly and I was good to go :)
Need to make a card for my daughter next. She has her Grade 1 piano exam tomorrow so she is a total mess! Poor thing is stressed out of her mind, mostly due to being a perfectionist and a worrier at heart. Poor thing got double whammied from both sides on the perfectionist part (mind you, I am far from the perfectionist I used to be after having kids LOL!) and the worry part is all from my hubby, so he is the one that gets to have the coping talks with her. She is very well prepared, and I think it is more the anticipation of it all that is killing her. Thankfully, they have Sports Day tomorrow so it will keep her mind occupied and not allow for a lot of worrying time.
Thanks for stopping in once or even twice today!
