SOG Recipe + CPS = Greatness

 I wanted to play along with Some Odd Girl's Recipe Challenge and decided to use this weeks CPS sketch to creat this card -

(Sorry the pic is a little dark.  One of my lamps is acting up.)
 I love these SOG girls.  And I really like Gwen since she's a curly haired one, like me :D  This one is actually from a Christmas set, which happens to be on my desk since I'm supposed to be working on my Christmas cards!  This is probably one of my favoite pattern paper packs.  I love the colors together and I always like the outcome.  The recipe called for two pattern papers, a colored base, buttons, and a punch/die cut.  I threw in a third pattern because, well, the sketch didn't look right with just the two, and since my paper was double sided, I flipped one over and it was perfect!

I used a scallop punch on the striped pattern just about the embossed sentiment.  Found three red buttons out of my stash and sewed them on with some Cappuccino twine from the Twinery.   And to make each pattern pop a little more, I inked all of the edges with some Walnut Stain Distress Ink before adhering them all.  

Since I had some scraps left, I went ahead and decorated the inside.  I haven't found the right stamp for the inside yet, but it's ready when I finally find one.  

Have a good Monday!
