If It Ain't Broke...



Don't fix it. Although that simple little saying is full of grammatical errors, I still use it and apply it, such as the ribbon/button treatment and the dandelion image that I did in my card here. United Thread, the feature Etsy shop for Etsy Inspired Challenges, has some really neat hand drawn images, especially of bees and dandelions. The sketch is from CPS. I've never tried grey, purple and yellow before on a card...I kind of like it!

**This is my second post today, I'd love it if you have time to check out my first.**

Supplies Used: CTMH Smokey Gray Cardstock, SU Whisper White Cardstock, SU DSP, Practicing Creativity Designs You're Dandy Stamp Set, SU Basic Grey Ink, Colorbox Chalk Ink in Lavender, Fiskar's Scallop Border Punch, SU Basic Grey Satin Ribbon, Button, Thread
