Eventually, I finished putting my card together and uploaded it to JUGS. Which by the way is a color challenge today! Sweet Lisa is hosting and she selected a fun palette based on a cute Vera Bradley bag. Take a look:
My MTME A Loving Heart Umbrellas paper was a perfect match for the palette, so I built my card around it.
I scaled Lauren's MTME It's a Shower template to 30% for my card. I used my MTME All Tied Up Ovals cut file for my main layer and filled my umbrella with randomly scaled pieces of my MTME Marvelous Maple Leaf and Beautiful Beech Leaf cut files. I cut the files from parchment cs I picked up at Staples and then sponged them. I used two colors on each, sponging the lighter color on the entire piece and the darker color on the outer edges (Real Red and Cherry Cobbler on the maple leaf and So Saffron and More Mustard on the beech leaf). I layered the leaves inside my umbrella using different thicknesses (1/16" and 1/8") of adhesive dimensionals.
I stamped my sentiment from MTME So Sentimental on one of the maple leaves, layered a beech leaf underneath and adhered it under my ribbon. My top oval panel is embossed with the Tim Holtz Woodgrain embossing folder. I used the yellow Criss Cross paper from my MTME Coffee Beans collection for the bottom panel.
Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge (MTSC100) was the inspiration behind my layout:
That about sums it up for me! Hope you enjoy the color challenge and take it on this week!! If you do, post a direct link to your project over at JUGS and use keyword JUGS60 in any online galleries. Before you get started, check out our awesome DT's projects:
