Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge

Good afternoon everyone.  This week's Make It Monday Challenge on Nichole's Blog over at Papertrey Ink called for making a simple card, and then amping it up with more layers.  Here is my take on the challenge.  First is the simple card using the frame set and a flower, just stamped on a white card.  I punched the corners with a ticket corner punch, which goes really well with the details on the frame set.  I used post it notes to line up the images.

This is my amped up version.  I placed the white panel on a Pacific Point blue card to set it off.  I added the yellow color and stamped with dots from Stampin' Up.  On the detail shot you can see that the sentiment panel is on dimensional tape and I added a yellow pearl to the O.  Then I tied on yellow twine and red embroidery floss to finish it off. 

This challenge was really fun!  Blogger has "updates" and is acting weird, so I apologize in advance if this turns out funky.

Have a great weekend.  from Martha
