Just playing around...

Hi everyone!  Happy Sunday evening to you.  I have another card to share with you because I just had to play along with a couple of challenges.  Have you seen the adorable sketch over at JUGS?  And then I added a great color combo from My Time Made Easy pretty pallette challenge.

This is a gift card holder and actually the entire focal part of the card is on a belly band.

Isn't this cute?  I really love this color combo (White, Aqua, Olive Green and Red).  I thought it was a pretty strange combination but it really looks quite stunning.  And the sketch was just too much fun, I couldn't pass it up.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Aqua (Recollections), Old Olive (SU!)
Paper:  Cafe Mediterranean (DCWV)
Copics:  BG01, BG05
Stamps/Ink:  Your Friendship (SNSS), Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Tools:  Apron Lace border punch
Embellishments:  Red satin ribbon (Offray), red button (my stash), Honeydew Baker's Twine (SNSS)

Thanks for stopping by!
