Yep It's that time again. I completely missed last weeks challenge so I wanted to be sure and catch this one. I managed 2 greeting cards but kept it to the KISS method. (Keep It Simple Stupid/Sweetheart.) Be sure and check out Linda's blog here to see all the details. You can also click here to see the Tim Holtz video that shows the technique for this weeks challenge.

For this background technique I chose the colors Dusty Concord, Faded Jeans, Bundled Sage and Milled Lavender. The swirl was something I hand cut for the previous project and ended up not using it so it got a new home. Before I mounted the swirl down I machine stitched around the edge of the black paper with a zig-zag. I also used a black glaze gel pen to add the row of dots along the top and bottom of the black paper.
