Hi everyone! I had a chance to put this card together for the sketch challenge over at The Paper Players in between loads of laundry today.

I sorta went out of my color comfort zone with this one. I had the dandelions stamped up and sitting in my "to make" box and decided come hell or high water I was going to use it today.  Then I had to search and destroy through my designer papers for something to work. Ya, easier said than done.

I ended up using the mesh die from Cherry Lynn to cut out a piece of kraft to go behind everything. Striped dp came from Fancy Pants, happy go lucky 6 x 6 paper pad. The I just grabbed a dark brown piece that matched the stripe to go behind. Wood self adhesive dots are from My Minds Eye.

Back to house work I go. Got stew in the crock pot and the smell is making my stomach growl, but it's one less thing I have to worry about today. Thanks for stopping by.

I think you did very well on matching up your papers. I recently found a stack of images that I had colored up and it is sometimes a challenge to put those images to the right card and papers. You did a great job.

Well all your hard work was worth it Laurie, I love this! In my book you can't go wrong with layers of neutrals plus white. Thanks so much for sharing with us this week at The Paper Players!
