My card today started out with the bulb in my Ottlite organizer burning out. So I had to do something about that - tried to replace the bulb with the one from the Ottlite I had by my sewing machine (no organizer on this one) - bulb didn't work! So had to move that lamp over to the work space. What to do with all the stuff in the caddy part - reorganize the whole work space was the solution - throw out stuff, put stuff away, find stuff, store stuff that's hardly ever used away somewhere else, etc. etc. etc. And in that whole process I found the watercolored piece that I used in my card today. Thus the title of my post today - if you are familiar with children's book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff is darling, so fun to read to kids - a story of one thing leads to another! Long intro for me!
So a card for three challenges came about!! Dawn McVey's "Make it Monday" technique was a camoflauged pocket insert card. Virginia's View Challenge is to use geometric patterns and Darnell's Challenge #5 is "never before used stuff" and anything goes.
The NBUS is the watercolored piece using Brushos (new to me) and the PTI leaf silhouette die (also new). The leaves are obviously geometric and also the chevron background. Watch Dawn's video to see how I constructed it. Supplies used: PTI Library pocket, PTI chevron coverplate, PTI patterned vellum and MFT stitched tag. I think it's a fun card to make altho I did have to fiddle around to get the tag to go in the pocket just right and finding a sentiment stamp that would fit in the space took some playing around too!
Thanks for stopping by today and love to read your kind comments. Betty
