As usual when I'm combining challenges I read at least one thing wrong on my list. One of the challenges I was making this for was ribbons, buttons, and bling, but I failed to read one more line that said + a digi. Oops, no digi on here, will have to come up with another card for that one. This one might have been a little too masculine for that challenge anyway. I have lots of favorite colors, but I usually come back to brown. I really like how this turned out so manly, even with the ribbon and buttons.
One of the challenges this is being entered into is to use a bargain stamp and tell how much you paid for it. Actually, you can't get much of a better bargain than free, yep, this set was a freebie to me from a friend. Another challenge is to use something from your stash, that would be the linen thread, I keep a stash of that but don't use it very often.
And, by the way this card is dedicated to One Stop Craft Challenge blog--this is their 100th week--kudos to them--they have beefed up their site, changed some of their rules to make it more inclusive for all of us and work very hard providing us with great challenges every week. One of my favorite places to play.

Beverly, I did the same this week. I combined a color challenge with a sketch challenge.... then realized that the color challenge had a little twist - background stamp! Ooops!!! :-)
I love the textures you created on this card. It is such a fun and tactile card.
So glad you joined the Paper Players this week
