THE OUTLAWZ TUESDAY COLOUR CHALLENGE

The colour palette over at The Outlawz colour challenge has a distinctly French flavour to it for me:

 
and as I like to play along for fun (I don't enter the challenge as I am a DT member) I made this vintage card:


I used a sheet of Graphic 45 stickers I bought a couple of months ago and made the card according to a sketch at Let's Scrap, where I will enter it as my LOAD #21 for September.

I also used the following for my card:

beige CS card base
very dark brown CS card mat (it looks black on the pic)
brown/cream DP (looks a little lilac in the pic - I think it's the effect of the camera flash)

One of the tag stickers was mounted on a beige CS tag and and has some embroidery/crochet cotton threaded thru the hole


As an embellishment, I stuck one of the round stickers onto a round metal ornament - I love the outcome!


Perhaps it's a little too fussy for a man (although I don't think so) but I think I am quite satisfied with the final product.
