Time Well Spent
Pattern Paper: three different patterned paper are combined in this card: I like how the square pattern offsets the roundness of the flowers; the stripe pattern could mimic a picket fence; the flower pattern could be the sky with birds.
Punches: so many were used in creating this card – all of which work together cohesively.
Sponging: adding a sponged edge to all the pieces unifies and softens the edges.
Accents: the layered buttons accent the flowers nicely and the touch of linen thread finishes them off. Additionally, utilizing dimension creates interest and depth.
There isn’t much else to say besides: I love this card!
