Madison Avenue - NAC33 - SUO64

I was browsing the sketch challenges last night and maybe the day before and found a few more to try out. The inspiration didn't hit me until late this afternoon and here is what I came up with. I am SUPER pleased with the results! So fun! I love how the colors POP!

Something fun to note is that I used the little flower from Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and placed it on the center of the button. It fits on there great!

2 Challenges: The first one Nacho Average Challenges (NAC33) for the layout and the second one I found a bit ago but haven't tried yet called SUO Challenges (SUOC64) which was to use a Sale-a-Bration item.

Thanks so much for looking! I appreciate your comments and pins as always.

  1. Cute! I really like the textured background - especially that it's a separate (but same-colored) layer. I've been seeing that a lot lately, so maybe I should try it sometime! Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. Thanks Michelle! I layered the background because the newer Textured Impressions Folders are too long to send in sideways. Most people don't like this look but I do. It also gives the card more support after being embossed.

  3. What fun little geometric shapes to go with the colorful patterns of the paper! Perfect use! Thanks for joining us at SUO Challenges this week.

  4. Fun, fun, fun! Looking forward to seeing this IRL.
