All Dressed Up...

Hello my Scrappy Friends! I finally finished another challenge, two actually! I used the sketch from Artful Delight and combined it with a challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous! 
Here's the sketch-

I followed the sketch basically but I did flip it. 


The challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous was to use a color that you had building up in your stash or that is hard to use and the twist was to also try to make it monochromatic. As you can see I choose purple. I had a lot of purple and that is a color I never use. I really don't know why but my personal choice is to use blue, greens, brown and yellows. I guess those tend to be the colors I gravitate towards.




This is a flower I made using some scrap material a friend gave me and folding and stapling as I went around. It is attached to a piece of cardboard, then I added the button and the hand cut leaves that I pocked holes in to make it stand out! The flower looks all most black here but is really a deep shade of purple. 

The second challenge was to make a card with your scraps. Here's how that turned out.


I kept it very simple and did a Z fold card which seems to be the card of choice at the moment. I didn't write a sentiment because I don't know who I will be sending this too.
