A Pot of Gold challenge...



 Mischelle, CEO and owner of TAC, is having a challenge over on TAC Savvy Projects blog.  She specified certain items that must be on the card to take part in this challenge.  They are:

1. Stitching ~ can be stamped or stitched.
2. A punched item ~ punched with a clever lever or other punching tool.
3. Ribbon!
4. A button AND/OR a bow AND/OR a brad!
5. The color GREEN! (a little or a lot)
6. LAYERS! You must use more than 1 layer of cardstock!

I believe I have met this challenge in this card...


I used Mimi SWIC (still have a little left then I'll start playing with More Mimi!), Running Stitches and Sunflowers stamp sets, Nesties Labels 9 and 5More Mimi Ribbon, a green button, a small flower punch (can you find it??), Momento Tuxedo Black and Burnt Umber PH inks, white scrappers floss (I got a LOT of this but use Bone Scrappers Spool!), and various Copic markers.   Have you found the punched flower yet?



I also sponged a bit of Pink Petunia VM ink on the label while the paper was still in the die.  Kinda frames it a bit more, don't you think?   Have you found the punched flower yet?  Well, here it is!


It's under the button!! I really struggled to add a punched item to this card and I don't think the Labels counted.  This was a fun challenge and please check out other projects in this challenge!

Carol! I love the pink ink sponged around your main image! It is such a nice contrast to the yellow flowers and really ties the image to the pattern paper and ribbon choices.

So pretty! I still have the Mimi too and need to use it more so I can buy some More Mimi! It's one of my most favorites in the collection!

I personally think punches should include diecuts. I think that the way you stacked two different nesties looks so cool!
