Agata *Day 4*

Okay, find your strongest adhesive, tape runner, double sided tape, duct tape, whatever you've got and now adhere your socks to your ankles because if you don't this next card by Agata is going to knock them right off your feet!! Check out this marvelous creation:WOWSERS; right??!! I love the bright blended colors!! I also love how the order of the colors in background mirrors the order on the center panel only in reverse. The punched kraft paper is a unique way to attach the sentiment. One final element that I think really makes this card"pop" are the touches of white! Oh, Agata, you are amazing!
Here is my take:
Supplies--Stamps: Text (Hero Arts K5344), Leaves (K & Company); Ink: Distress Ink (Tim Holtz/Ranger), VersaMark; Other: Pearls (Recollections), Embossing Folder (Provocraft for Cuttlebug), Dimensional Adhesive (All Night Media), White Embossing Powder (JoAnn Craft Essentials), Large Butterfly Punch (Martha Stewart), Small Butterfly Punch (Fiskars)
