Homegrown Countryside card for sketch challenge


This is only my second time participating in The Paper Players challenge, and I love sketches. To add a little interest to a simple sketch (my favorite kind), I "notched" the two main layers with the oval punch used to punch out the Homegrown oval. The colors used are Baja Breeze and Bravo Burgundy.


I love the pickup truck from Countryside stamped in a single color. I added some Crumb Cake seam binding to the front of the card after running more than half of the front through the Big Shot in the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. The sketch is below. You have till Friday at midnight to enter a card!


Edited on June 25 to add: Thanks to The Paper Players for selecting my card as A Cut Above!
