The Best Journey Always Leads Us Home–C4C #169


Hi, there! It’s that crazy time of the week—Crazy 4 Challenges time! This week Betty has a sketch for us to play with:



For my card, I kept the layout but flipped the orientation. I’m using MFT’s Clearly Sentimental About the Journey and several pattern paper die cuts for the focal image—top to bottom: Die-namics Layered Label, Die-namics Designer Labels STAX 2, Die-namics Clearly Sentiment Label. For the center element, I wrapped around some burgundy jute and tied on a Black Licorice button. The bottom element is made of Die-namics Skyline Border and Die-namics Solid Skyline.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set—this set has such encouraging sentiments!


And that's it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for you!

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C169.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
