Time Well Spent


Today I have a card to share that I created for three different challenges, hence my title, "Time Well Spent":

Stacey's Curtain Call Colour Challenge-So Saffron, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake
Stamping 411 Sketch
Pals Paper Arts-Scallops

The colours were right up my alley and I knew I wanted to make a distressed, sponged card with the warm yellows and red.  I also wanted to use the simple sketch at Stampin' 411 to be a jumping off point.  My scallops are created with the scallop edge border punch and the matching corner punch.  I love those punches!

My card measures 5"x5" as I wanted to create a square card using the sketch.  I have to admit, this card did not come together for me as I had envisioned it?  I think I needed to change the card base but I decided to post it anyway, sometimes a card will grow on my even if initially I didn't like it at first!  Does that ever happen to you?

Thanks for stopping by!
Smiles,
Lesley
