JUGs 38 - Pink & Brown


A quick post about my card for the current JUGs challenge.  The challenge this week is a color challenge:  pink, brown and vanilla.   I have been feeling mojo-less for the last few days and to get things restarted I decided to combine the JUGs challenge with the current PaperCrafts Connection sketch challenge #4.   Unfortunately I don't have a picture of the sketch.  As I thought about what I paper I would use for the card I thought about some old SU! DP that I have that was perfect for the challenge.  I don't even remember the name, just that it was pink, brown and vanilla.    I used Nesties Labels 9 dies and a cute new stamp from Hero Arts called Little Butterfly.  The sentiment is from the Taylored Expressions set CreativTea.    Did some sponging/distressing on the edges of the die cut piece, as well as on the patterned paper.  The butterfly was stamped in Close to Cocoa on the die cut piece and then in Pretty in Pink on a scrap of cream cardstock.  Just the wings were cut out and popped up on top of the brown image.  



I finished the card with some vintage seam binding (I actually bought it at an antique store, it is from the 70s) that I crinkled up by getting it wet and wadding into a loose ball.  A SU! cord button was added to the center.  

Thanks for taking a peek. 

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Vintage Cream; Patterned Paper:  SU! DP; Ink:  SU! Pretty in Pink; Close to Cocoa; Dies: Spellbinders Labels 9 dies; EK Success punch; SU! Word Window punch; Talon pink seam binding; SU! cord button
