FTTC112–Inspiration Challenge

 

SONY DSC

Hello everyone~

circle quilt

It’s time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC112). Tammy Hershberger is the challenge host and she is challenging us using the circle quilting throw for the inspiration! Please visit Flourishes blog for more detail about how to play. Can’t wait to see your card/project!

 

For my card, I took my inspirations from the colors and circles. I found the wonderful designer paper from Christmas/holiday theme :) It worked very well for the non-Christmas card, don’t you think?

I used Tokens of Affection set. The image was colored with Copic markers. I sponged to antique some of the mats to match the light brown color of the couch. To finish off, I dressed with the buttons with vintage twine.

This card is also submitted to Sweet Sketch Sunday Challenge 111 (SSSC111) from Karen’s blog.
