This is my card for the Crazy 4 Challenges today. It is pretty open as you just have to use 3 gemetric shapes. I see the team had awesome cards that really are pretty but I chose to do a very simple card as I was working at a coworkers house hanging sheetrock and backer board most all night and until 2:30 this afternoon. Kinda rummy , the brain bee bees just aren't moving to quickly. hehe I used a dusty purple base for a gate card. I then punched a gold color with a Martha Stewart arches punch added a burgandy strip and a thin green strip. This forms a band that goes all around the card to hold it closed. I consider this a rectangle. I had colored the wreath earlier this week so used it for my circle shape and attached it as the focal point. I then punched 2 gold squares and then 2 burgandy rectangles and attached the sentiments on them. I then punched all these little gold leave to scatter around. Really I messed up and got some glue smeared and had to add lots of them to cover it. It really looked better when there were just a couple but had to cover the mess up. :) It was fun and fast using punches for most of the card.
