Not Quite What I Was After

 This was another of the Last minute request cards from the other week, I'd mentioned how my son always leaves it to the last minute to ask for a card, well this one wasn't quite what I'd planned but he and the recipient were pleased with it.
 
 


A few die cuts, some layers raised on foam, some embossing and inking, some nail heads and a shaped sentiment pretty much completes the card. except for some ribbon, twine and a lovely big button.
 



I also distressed the sentiment flag and added some inky stitching.


 
I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CCC42, Not square,
DYSU95, Embossing,
PCJ, Ribbon/twine,
PCC99, Ribbon,button,
House Of Gilli 44, Embossing,
MIM112, Anything goes.
 
Have a great weekend,
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x

I think you've chosen such a great color combination for this card. The shape, the die cut elements, the ribbon and twine are lovely elements on your card. I like the detail of the button in the middle of your flower and the sentiment sits well with this design!
