I had time to make a couple cards yesterday afternoon and decided to join in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge this week. This sketch looks easier than it actually was, at least for me. Once I had an idea though it went together very quickly!
The 1 3/4" Circle Punch was used to punch circles from the Marina Mist Card Stock and then to punch out two circles from Parker's Patterns Designer Series Paper. The circles were too plain on their own and needed a little something else. Their centerpieces started as a large Silver Button and still needed something. Two little images from A Fitting Occasion did the job. They were backed with a 7/8" Scallop Circle. A knot was tied on the Marina Mist with some natural trim and finally I felt it was finished!
The interior is really simple too. A sentiment from Really Good Greeting was stamped in Early Espresso. The necktie image was stamped and trimmed out to place over the exclamation point.
