Celebrate.../CTD#231/CTS#17

Hello and happy Saturday! This is my second post today. If you are looking for my Drunken Stampers post, you can either click here or just keep scrolling!

This card I made using the colors from Color Throwdown #231 and the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch #17:



and the inside:


Here are the challenges:



So I kind of flipped the sketch image on end. Sorta. The saffron rug represents the longest rectangle, the picture frame is the itty bitty one, and the hexagons the mid sized one. In the light of day, I see I should have glued the chair closer to the picture frame. (I blame the wine I was partaking in last night while making this! ☺) Oh well, I still love how this turned out! Did some paper piecing on the chair and picture frame. Oh, and that wine bottle sitting in the chair? That is actually one of the vase images in the Vogue Abode set I used from Paper Smooches. I just colored the outline with a black marker omitting one of the designs inside the vase and wallah: instant wine bottle!

Well, that's all for now. Back to switching out the laundry. Ugh! Thanks for stopping by!

    I so love how you've modded the vase to make a wine bottle - after all, really, isn't THAT what we need more of? lol
    The inside makes the whole thing so darn funny :) I love it!

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
