For today's card I decided to try out a look I had seen on a few cards and actually on a 8-1/2" x 11" scrapbook layout in a magazine. I felt that this week's sketch challenge at Stampin' Addicts went perfectly with the look I was going for:
It also went with Stampin' Celebration's fun inspiration challenge!
Mmmm, doesn't that cherry pie just look delicious? These colors really spoke to me! I only wish that I had the Wild West Alphabet! Now I'm itching for a cook-out! :)
Ok, now here's my card...
What do you think of the border punch background look? I simply punched strips of Kraft cardstock with three different border punches, then adhered it onto my Kraft card base. I added a strip of Crushed Curry for a pop of extra color. Love how this turned out!
Don't forget that you can get a free pack of Designer Brads when you order select stamp sets.. the Circle Circus set I used here is one of them! The Filigree Designer Brads are one of the four free choices as well.
If you're finding yourself with some crafty time this weekend, check out both of the challenges!
Have a wonderful day!
