Friday Focus

Once again I managed to combine two challenges and I'm delighted with the colours and the layout.  This card will be going straight into the post once I've written inside it.  The colours are from Color Throwdown and just amazingly classic. I thought at first the sage was going to make an awful clash with the other two greens, but the chocolate brown seems to balance things out.

The layout from Freshly Made Sketches is a very familiar type for me and is very reminiscent of many cards I've made in the past, albeit they were much more cutesy and layered up.Once again I added an embossed line either side of the vertical strip. After some thought I decided twine with a button was more suitable than ribbon. Hope you like it!

Stamps: Uniko Studio , Flower Power #1 & #3, All Occasion Sentiments #1
Ink: Memento, rich cocoa, pistachio
Paper: My Mind's Eye, Follow your heart
Twine & button from my stash

LSNED Day 5: I was thinking about how quickly time passes by and how my baby grandson is now a schoolboy - how did that happen so fast? Lesson: Be present and enjoy the moment.

Thanks for looking.
