C4C ~ Thanks!

Hello and welcome! I'm here with a card for week number two of my guest designing spot at Crazy 4 Challenges! Silke picked out such a pretty photo for our inspiration this week. She's asked us to use chevrons along with gray, yellow, green and pink. 



I've added two panels of patterned paper from MME to a medium gray panel.  Before adhering them I added this shimmery gray ribbon. Next this was put onto my white card base. I've used one half of a paper doily to anchor my sentiment label holding this sweet Precious Remembrance Shop sentiment. Flower die cuts (PTI) serve as the base for the MFT felt mini rolled roses. I tucked in three ever so pretty leaf buttons and topped the card off with matching green gems.


Many of you know that I ask my hubby's opinion on my cards. Here's his run down on this one! "Well...I like everything on it, but I don't like the two halves. It looks like it has a split personality." LOL...gotta love that man, he's honest! But I didn't change a thing since I was SO happy with my bow!! 



Have a blessed weekend friends! I hope you get a chance to play along at Crazy 4 Challenges this week. Take some time to visit the team too, they'll inspire you with their pretty cards! ~Lisa

I love this colour combo Lisa and your layering of elements is so beautifully done. I always admire that in others but I just cannot seem to bring myself to layer things on my cards, maybe it's because a large portion of my cards I would need to post and am not willing to risk them getting damaged.
