Wish-card for The Rubber Buggy

Hi everyone!

Another  Tuesday with a new project for the rubber buggy.

This card was inpsired by MFT's challenges both the layout and the color combination.

I was really struggeling with the color combination. But then it hit me, Graphic 45 could probably sort me out :)

I love how you can mix Graphic 45's collections - would you guess that this card is made with two different collections? Steampunk spells and French country. Now, don't you just love the colours?

It might show better in the inside that I have used the 4x6 cut aparts from the 12x12 paper pad (French country) to use as my background. On the front of the card I have used layers in the same proportions as the cut apart.

I used a lot of my MFT die-namics on this card as well. The sentiment is stamped on a the wider band from the first place award ribbon set, which I popped up with foam dots on a file tab by MFT.  I also added, in order to follow the sketch, a vintage flourish that I cut and tucked in underneath the chipboard banner. Also, I have used the well worn greetings die set on the inside of the card.
