Extra Oomph for the Color Throwdown

color throwdownI planned to clean my house today, but my craft room beckoned to me and I finally gave into my creative compulsion. So instead of cleaning toilets and doing laundry, I decided to create a cute little card for the latest Color Throwdown Challenge. The basic combination of kraft, green and white led me to a super basic card, but I jazzed it up with a few extra touches. I created the flower out of a brown paper bag and added the button stitched in green to create a simple focal piece. I also added some bulky stitching with cross-stitch floss and inked every little edge. The combination of two simple polka dot papers was a fun little twist on the greens. Although the colors are minimal, I think all the techniques and textures give this basic card a little extra oomph.
