kraft and red. . . .

is a pleasing color combo.  I decided to use these colors for the current Seize the Sketch challenge:


My card is a very "loose" interpretation of the sketch:


Recently, I had sorted through a lot of my embellies and came across these Prima flowers that I had won on Tim Holtz' blog a couple of years ago.  Then I found a patterned paper that I liked with them.  The twine is from Tim, too, and the sentiment is Hero Arts.  I added some platinum Stickles to the tips of the flowers, but it is difficult to see in the photo.  (my apologies for the poorly taken photo.)

Sending this over to SSS Wednesday challenge for their anything goes week.  There are so many entries for this particular challenge each month that it behooves a person to try to send in the five card maximum to stand any chance at all of winning.  But, isn't it fun??  Even if you don't win, you have more cards in your stash for future use. 

Have a great day!
