My card follows the sketch fairly closely - I rotated the card and used one less layer. Again this week I used a colour combination I am not completely comfortable with. Although I have used Crushed Curry - it is usually only as an accent on cards so I decided to use it for my base card. I inked up my Very Vintage jumbo wheel (in the Occasions Mini, so only available until April 30) with Crushed Curry ink and rolled it onto the front of the card. I used the Ticket Corner punch on two corners of the Rich Razzleberry layer. Punched a hole in that with the Crop-a-dile and attached a jumbo grommet. At first I was going to attach the crushed curry ribbon with a glue dot, but didn't want to take the chance that it would fall off. I threaded both ends of the ribbon through the jumbo eyelet and then before tugging it all the way through, I inserted a toothpick in the loop at the back to secure it. I knew I was going to raise the panel up with dimensionals so I wasn`t worried about the thickness of it. It turned out great!
I hadn`t yet put the Upsy Daisy stamp set away, so I decided to use that. I stamped the image once in Crushed Curry and once in Rich Razzleberry. When doing the sentiment, I decided I would use the card for a good friend who is retiring this week. The colours remind me of pansies and she loves pansies. I had hoped to make some of the pansies using the butterfly punch, but have not yet been very successful with that. I am quite happy with the card and I am sure she will be too!
