HIMCR 328 challenge

Card #2 using the black and white digital image from "My Besties!"

Hiding in My Craft Room or HIMCR 328 challenge is for November 27-December 2, 2017 which is a week 4, any holiday, based challenge.

The design team was given images from "My Besties" to be the inspiration for this week. 

The image I decided to use for both card 1 and card 2 has been affectionately labeled by me as "Happy Heart". Other supplies I used were:

*adhesives from Glue Dots
*glue stick from Jot
*stencil from Folk Art Decorative Icons stencil set by Plaid
*deco tape from Jot
*gift tags used as embellishments from Christmas House
*neon yellow green card stock (4.5" x 5.5") by Astrobrights from Neenah Paper, Inc.
*butterscotch card stock scrap from Colorbok
*olive green card stock scrap from Colorbok
*stash supplies= pencil, ruler, scissors, markers, colored pencils, stapler, ....

angled view to see part of inside and how some elements were repeated from the front

In person the olive green of her eye just makes the olive green background shape that much stronger and intense. And I like this butterscotch colored card stock to help reflect the gold tones from the gift tags that were used for embellishments (ornaments on front were cut out from a gift tag).
