TDSC20

Update: 8:45pm Thursday- Things have settled down a bit so I wanted to let you know just a few things about this card that may not be obvious. First the layer under the teal with white dot layer started as Bella Rose DSP (retired SU!). Because the challenge required copper, I covered the DSP with copper glitter glue. This took a while to dry but I like the effects of a glittered layer just peeking out of the teal. The other not so obvious thing is the corner embellishment. This is a paper epoxy button like accent from Colorbok's Friendly Forest line. I punched a 3/4 circle from Taken with Teal and layered it on top of the button and threaded the ribbon through both. The rest is pretty much self explanatory.

It is a crazy hectic week so I won't be able to post the details of my card until late this week or early next but I would be remiss if I did not remind you of the fun challenge over at The Digi Shack. This week's challenge is a color challenge- chocolate, caramel. teal, and copper. You can see the challenge and the other DT members creations here.
