In Stitches!

Hello friends!  TGIF!  I am SO ready for the weekend!  I am here today with a super simple card that was inspired by a scrap of white "dotted Swiss" paper.  It brought back lots of warm memories and gave me the idea to reach for the tape measure washi tape, scissors brads, and a sewing machine stamp for this quick design.

I love kraft and black and decided to try out a relatively monochromatic scheme with just a couple of pops of color, repeating the color in a couple of places to tie things together.  There's the yellow tape measure and the yellow enamel dot flower center, the black spool brad and the shimmery (glitter pen) black spool atop the sewing machine, the Copic warm grey sewing machine and the metallic scissors, and finally the green leaves and green ribbon.  The colors cause your eye to travel around the visual triangle of the various elements, the neutral background colors make the yellow and green really pop, and the black grounds everything so that it all works together.  

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
