When I saw the colour palette at The Outlawz Tuesday Challenge it just about stumped me! I finally decided on this:
I am entering my card into these challenges:
The Outlawz Tuesday Challenge - Colour + Twist (add faux stitching)
Clear It Out Challenge - Stencil + Emboss
Stella Says Sketch - Sketch
Love To Create - Polka Dots + Pearls
I have used a corrugated iron patterned paper from Kaisercraft for this card. I embossed a piece of shimmer cardstock from DCWV using an embossing folder. I then stencilled some polka dots on a piece of scrap cardstock using Distress Ink - Pumice Stone and a Memory Box stencil. The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and is called Sock Monkey - September. The sentiment is from Netty's Cards and I thought this would work perfectly for the husband of my son's German teacher who is accompanying them on an overseas trip in a few week's time.
