Celebrate With Primitive Pizza!...Or Maybe Not.




Perhaps an oddly named post, but perfect for an oddly made card.  This is my second offering put up for consideration for CR84FN Color Challenge's DT call on now.  I have participated in many, many CR84FN Color Challenges before, that's for sure, but I think this might well be the first time I have ever attempted a card with a pennant that freakishly resembles a slice of primitive patterned pizza. Oh well, let's hope they don't think this too outlandish an offering for consideration, but like most other "out there" creations that I make, it's me down to the ground.  100% quirky and ever so slightly mad.  The colors this time around are Denim, Tan, and Brown. 

This card was made from a compilation of crafting goodies from Hero Arts (the denim colored diamond shaped background), Waltzingmouse Stamps (the pennant stamp), and Papertrey Ink (the sentiment).  The die cut flower is a little mock up made using all of the dies in the Tim Holtz Alterations die called Tattered Florals.  Lastly, the pennant and the sentiment label are all from the same Spellbinders' Lacey Banners set.  After spritzing (or rather sogging) the card base (PTI's Fine Linen C/S) within an inch of it's life with Glimmer Mists in both Coffee Shop and Denim, I nibbled at all of the corners with my pink/mauve handled Corner Chomper's Cloud side.  Ta da!  Well that's this offer done.

Thank you ever so much for stopping by.  Here's to a glorious day for us all!

Your card is very sophisticated 'primative' Jen!! Love the rich use of color in that line of buttons in mahogany variations, bit of shimmer you've added to the patterned paper and the fabulous flower!!
