Top Note Card



It's been a long time since I played in an Our Creative Corner Challenge. This week was a color challenge to use Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, & Early Espresso. I used Kazan's sketch #62 from 2S4Y for the layout...a challenge to use a decorative edge on our card. I cut 2 top note dies in Soft Suede, then scored about 1/4 inch from the top of the back panel, folded it down and attached it using red tape. It forms a type of easel card. The flower was created using 2 different dies - the rolled flower die from MFT and the Blossoms die from PTI. Thanks for stopping by...I love to read your comments, so, let me know what you think.

Loving that flower, Wanda and green with envy that you have those PTI dies - they were sold out when I placed my order :( Great use of the colours and sketch!

All my favorite colors.. This is so pretty.. You always can arrange all your elements so nicely on a card.. I have not used my die in so long.. Great job.

Saw this today while I was at work... can't remember if I had a chance to comment or not {really, really busy day}... if this is the second post-well... that's okay!! Love the use of the top note die {love that but, don't think of it often enough}- love the colors and how you used them in your layout and agree with Marissa the rolled flower on top of the PTI flower is perfect!!! Wonderful card!!
