I 100% LOVE this sentiment and not just because I made it up … but I think it’s absolutely true in so many ways!!
I LOVE the colors and they happen to be The Color Throwdown colors this week – so proud of myself – two weeks in a row!!
Here’s the color challenge colors:
I decided to also add dark chocolate brown – I just had to… it’s dirt color, ya know?!! : ) But I think my hen and some of the distressing should cover the Kraft color!! : )
About the card….. I LOVE it! It’s not too often that I love my own work or that I admit that I love it, but I really do love this one! First off, I LOVE the stamp set – I designed it for Our Craft Lounge – I think I’d love it even if someone else designed it though! It’s called Sunflower Seeds. One of my favorite elements in the set is the rectangular frame, it’s a no-brainer grunge edge frame!! No matter how hard I’ve tried in the past, there’s just no way that I could get a perfectly grungy frame like that!! The sentiments and images in this set fit into the frame to create all sorts of fun. A seed packet, a frame, or just a plain old grungy rectangle : )
When I saw this Sizzix Die – On the Fence, I knew it would go perfectly with dear Henny Penny!! The Mini Fasteners that look like little screws…..LOVE those too!! For the little fancy slit, I used the Ornamental Photo Corners – Movers and Shapers die.
The brick pattern embossing is from my favorite texture fade folder – Bricked and Woodgrain – LOVE!!
I dyed seam binding to match.. and then stuck a Trinket Pin in it – fun stuff!!
And of course the paper….. LOOOVVVVEEE (in my most angelic singing voice ever) - I’m totally addicted to this paper – so much that I’ve neglected to use much else since receiving it!! It’s sweet sweet My Mind’s Eye – Mabel.
Well, I think that about wraps it up – I LOVE lots of things today…and I’m always willing to get a little dirty ; )
