Way Out Of My Comfort Zone

While I was waiting for my Miss V to arrive this morning. I thought I would take a few minutes to finish this card that I started some time ago. It just didn't seem to want to go together. These colors are not colors that I would normally use together, however I had that scrap piece of designer paper sitting on my desk forever and wanted to use it up, so this is what came to me this morning.
I also found that it fit quite a few challenges this week....that is if I hurry and post.
One Stitch At A Time Anything Goes
Just Add Ink Anything - just add ink
Ai Factory Anything goes



I made this card using scrap papers, MS border punch, scraps of flowers and leaves left over from another project. I inked the edges of the flowers, Also used ink to stamp the sentiment which is from Heart and Soul Rubber stamp company. rick rack is by basic grey koshi, small piece I had left over from another project. Gems are Jesse James.
