This week's challenge was:
Use 3 strips of paper
I had a whole other layout in mind and then this happened. I really like the shabby feel of this card and the layout is pretty versatile. I've been ignoring my background stamps so I pulled out Bella Toile and stamped it in Chocolate Chip ink on the Kraft cardstock. I left more of it showing on the sides than usual and I like the chunky border. The flower is actually from my reject pile for another card. The only thing I'm a little unsure of is the tag. It was a recipe requirement so I had to put it on but I'm not sure I'm loving it. I think I would have rather had the sentiment stamped on the panel with the flower....what do you think??
Thanks for stopping by!
