Just like Mommy

For this card i am combining 2 challenges again...I love finding sketches that work with a theme.  I remember some time ago i bought this paper with purses on it and mind you, i planned to use the paper for scrapbooking, well it didn't happen, but i have a lot of it left after i made this card.  I think the paper would have been better at a smaller scale for the card, but i went for it anyway.  Very different color combinations for me, but the entire card and image was based on the background paper.

The process, i knew what i wanted in my mind, but it didn't materialize as i was making this card.  I colored the hat 3 different colors...first a tan, then light aqua and in the end a green...but all of the layers are there....eh, so maybe a whole new color. :)

Mo's Challenge blog called for "Spots"...can you see them all?  Kind of like playing a scavenger hunt, don't you think...the grandkids would love it.

Here is my card:


















Here is the sketch that i used from Sketch N Stash..oh and the paper i based my card on (purse patterned paper) is "old" in scrapbooking terms.

I love the color combination, Bonnie! I like the way you've done a narrow black reveal around the papers...nice effect! Glad you joined us in Mo's Challenge.
