November 7, 2012

Came up with this card for two challenges this week. A sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches - I just couldn't get a circle shape to work out right so I substituted with the tabbed rectangle from the Apothecary framelits. But I definitely kept it clean (I even refrained from using an embossing folder on the card front portion)! And a color challenge from Color Throwdown - I hope I have time to do another one before the deadline because I feel like that combo has so much potential!
This card is going to the staff of Harvest Bible Chapel of Peoria for all their hard work and dedication to get us moved into our new church building before our Grand Opening THIS Sunday!!!

Paper: Lucky LimeAde, old, old Night of Navy DSP (yay, used a bit more DSP!), Basic Black, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Tools: Big Shot, Apothecary framelits, Stripes EF, Little Leaves Sizzlit
Embellishments: SAB Brads
