Lean On Me, When You're Not Strong

CHALLENGES GALORE to make this card --I am a sucker for sketches, and fell in love with this simple and clean and easy one over at Card Positioning Systems blog. (CPS148) I just knew I had to try it.

Then the color challenge (CC252) intrigued me -- strange colors (Bermuda Bay (or taken with teal), handsome hunter, and certainly celery with a *pop* of pink somewhere).

Oh and can't forget Monday there was an awesome Technique Lovers Challenge on SCS (TLC254 - it was quilting on a card), so I threw that in too . . . and this is the crazy finished project I came up with! I like it. What do you think????

Stamps: Funny Bras - Volume 1 (Skipping Stones Design) Paper: Taken With Teal (SU!), Handsome Hunter (SU!), Certainly Celery (SU!), Solar White Classic Crest (Neenah), Certainly Celery Designer Series Paper (SU!), Graceful Circles - Penny Lane (My Minds Eye) Ink: Onyx Black Versafine Accessories: 3D Glue Dots (Therm o Web), sewing machine (Singer), white thread (Sulky), Pale pink thread (Sulky), Pink Vintage Buttons (Papertrey Ink)
