Anita *Day 3*

I just love this card by Anita:
One of the first things that caught my attention about this card is the overall design. The stripes on top, the sentiment between the two thin pieces of colored paper, and the text on the bottom all adds up to such a balanced layout with limitless possibilities. Next, this card has such a bold and unique color scheme. I love the mix of brown, black and red. Finally, Anita has given this card a lovely shape by adding the scallops on the bottom!
Here is my take: (BTW- can you tell I finally got my hands on the Labels 8 Nestability Die Cut? Hope you aren't sick of it yet! LOL)Thanks for popping by!
