3 Card Challenges

This card was entered into the following challenges:

1) Create4fun, Week 6 (sketch);
2) One Stop Craft Challenge, #66 (Color);
3) Penny Black Saturday Challenge, Week 87

In response to this week's challenges, I started by selecting comparable colors by taking pages from the same paper pad. The brown and cream trim was cut from another patterned page. Natural colored twine was wound around the central circle which adds something above the sentiment. I then added a small brown bow that is held with a pearl headed pin. (Note: If this card is being given to anyone, please alert them to the hazard of the pin or remove it from the card entirely.)
Materials Used:
Me & My Big Ideas Paper
Darice Natural Twine
Stamp 'N Stuff Silver Grey Embossing Powder
Cricut Walk in my Garden and Plantin Schoolbook Cartridges
Michael's Ribbon
Pearl Head Pin
Mini Pop Dots

Enjoy! Your comments are most appreciated.
