...Ways To Use It Challenge #220

This is my submission for yesterday's Ways To Use It Challenge #220 at SCS...Buttons! I started with a Baja Breeze Cardstock base, and matted each additional layer with Kraft Cardstock. The patterned papers were from the Manchester Designer Series Paper pack, and the large plaid panel was pierced using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. The focal panel was created using the Sizzix Top Note Die and the Sizzix Big Shot. The leaves were from the Stampin' Up set "Wonderful You". They were stamped in VersaMark Ink, and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. The sentiment was from Verve Visual's Plain Jane set "Proverbs 3:5", and was stamped in the same manner as the leaves using Always Artichoke Craft Ink instead of VersaMark. I punched the top note panel with the Horizontal Slot Punch, then ran some 5/8" Baja-Colored Grosgrain Ribbon through it to tie in a knot. The card was completed by adding a Baja-Colored Button and Linen Thread to the upper right-hand corner of the focal panel.

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you all again tomorrow with a couple of sketch challenge cards. So until then...
