life is about...

Hello friends!!  Have a fun little card that I made for a couple of challenges, ColourQ and CAS(E) this Sketch.  I used a sentiment from the Reverse Confetti set Dream in Color so I will be linking this up to their "Fetti Finds" link list. 

 

When I saw new sketch from CTS I knew I would be making something with it and I almost went with a literal interpretation of the sketch... i.e. to use fishtail banners.  But then I stopped myself and decided to think outside the box a bit more.  After trying one idea and rejecting it I remembered all the buttons I had and my idea was born.   I adhered the yellow and aqua buttons, then the sentiment strip and finally the red button.  After I was done I felt that the card was just a bit too simple and so I decided to ink up the sentiment using red, yellow and aqua inks, trim out the three words you see and adhere them with foam dimensionals.  I think it provides that little "something extra" the card needed.

Thanks for stopping by...
