Peace Hope Love and Being Uncomfortable!


This card is totally out of my comfort zone and out of the box for me - a card with few layers and lots of white space! Something I rarely, rarely do! I made it for SCS Ways To Use It Challenge 237: Out of the Box and for Color Challenge 238: Pretty in Pink, Going Gray, Sage Shadow.

I stamped my sentiment in Basic Gray ink, then mounted it on a layer run through my Cuttlebug using the Textile folder. The flower was colored with Pretty in Pink and Sage Shadow markers. There are Diamond Stickles on the flower seeds.

There are three scored lines (Scor-Pal) at the bottom - the middle one has the silver beads, and there is one scored line across the top above the ribbon. (Click on the photo to see this better!)

I like it, but it sure isn't my usual fare!

Thanks for stopping by!
