I've been thinking about you



Hello and welcome! I totally meant to post this yesterday but this week has taken twists and turns of its own beyond my control. So here I am on the final day with my entry for Our Creative Corner-Button 'n Burlap or Bows challenge and I'm using Card Patterns Sketch # 169 for inspiration. I also plan to link up with Make It Monday #94 where anything goes. Here's a little close up of my challenge requirements.




This card is for my mom and I've been thinking about her lately. :) She loves flowers so I used Authentiques's Gathering dp's to put this little number together. Per the OCC challenge requirements we had to use buttons, burlap or bows. Even though my card is relatively small, 4x6, I found a way to include all three which made me happy. The burlap anchors my orange twill ribbon and the button & burlap bow draw the eye to my sentiment banner. I did not want to compete with the beautiful floral dp so I die cut two rosettes from a coordinating dp and anchored it with the smaller rosette {which was not accordion folded} and placed a teal pearl to add a pop of color. The base is bittersweet chocolate and I've been thinking about chocolate chip cookies ever since so I think I'll go now and whip up a batch.

Thanks for stopping by and hurry if you want to play with the OCC challenge and the sketch.
Have a great weekend everyone,
Lisa

Phew....just in time!! LOL :)
L1, I think the world of your card; especially since it's for your mom. Your attention to detail and arrangement on this is stellar. I love that rosette and the the DP...a truly stunning card. 4x6 is small? How big do you usually make your cards?
I had the best time drinking my coffee and enjoying your card this morning. :)

Thank you so much for taking the time to link up your talent and creative ideas with us at Make It Monday!
