I love the sketches at Mojo Monday because they tend to be a bit more detailed than what I usually do with my cards, so it allows me to step out of my box a little bit. The colors at colourQ were a little challenging because they are all colors I don't really use that often. I typically only use Bravo Burgundy for fall and Christmas cards, so it was fun using it on a different type of card!
I had seen a sample or two in the Annual Catalog that had Glimmer Brads inside the Vintage Faceted Designer Buttons and I just loved that! I used the gold Glimmer Brad from the neutrals set and it really coordinated well with the Summer Starfruit ink. The button is glued down with Crystal Effects. It dries clear so you can't even see it!
I finished my card and thought it needed a little somethin', somethin' so I went back and added in the four loops of Baker's Twine AFTER I had already taken pictures of my card. Then I had to set up my picture-takin' area AGAIN and redo it. :) I think it really changed the card for the better though, so it was worth it in the end! What's another 10 minutes of sleep anyway? ;)
