Now that Sale-a-bration is winding down, I want to use up my Irresistibly Yours paper from the Sale-a-bration catalog. That, and because this paper is awesome! I decided to grunge it up a bit for today's card. And because it is Thursday, I have a challenge from Create with Connie and Mary. It is a color challenge this week!
Here is my card:
And the colors:
The Irresistibly Yours paper did all of the work for me on the background. It comes pre-embossed so all I did was sponge on some Sahara Sand ink.
The stamping was all done with different images from the Painted Petals stamp set - even the dots and stripes. That is one of the things I love about that stamp set! To add some texture and visual interest, I tucked a doily, thread, and twine behind the focal point. This layout is a great way to use up some scraps - not that I did that - just saying'
