I tried something new...

I have a hard time with certain colors and themes.  I wanted to try something different so I used browns with just a splash of color.

The base is brown cardstock.  I used the Market Street Stamps Punched tin background.  I cut it down and put it on. I just got the We are Memory Keepers, sew easy.  I love it!!!  I took a piece of cardstock and sewed the green on it.  I then attached that.  I dashed all around the edges.  I took a little ribbon and tied it around the top.  I used a big circle punch, I think it is 2 inches, popped it up with pop dots.  The Hi is a die cut I got at Archivers this weekend, I pulled it off my daughters card. :)  Then just added some gemstones to the HI.

I will be entering this in the Market Street Stamps Block Party.

I use brown a lot and for that same reason - to showcase little pops of color! Very cute and the stitching is a great touch! Thanks for partying with us at the MSS Block Party!! :)
