OWH Sunday Sketch #103

This week's OWH Sunday Sketch had lots of embellishments on it.  I started with a floral cascade in my head, but when I was assembling sup[plies I saw my manly wood grain and flannel plaid DSP from the SU! Holiday mini  I changed my mind and decided to make a masculine card. But what to do in place of those flowers.  Buttons would be good but I didn't have any that were the right size/color for my project.  ... so I made my own

I used pieces of the patterned paper for the bulk of the card, only stamping the sentiment (from TCP).  I also punch 10-12 circles in each size (1.25", .75", and .5").  I slathered adhesive over all but one and stacked them up to build the thickness I wanted.  I then used my crop-a-dile to punch the holes and tied them with twine from my garage.

Pretty cool huh!?!.  I've also embossed them with clear EP before but didn't this time around.

Colors are Cherry Cobbler and Early Espresso (SU!)

Thanks for stopping!!
