EBTKS Challenge 17

I'm writing this post pretty early because I'll be traveling for work when this needs to go live. I'll actually going to be at CentriKid camp at Lee University with a video/photo crew shooting the next promotional video. I tell you all this, as it is currently Saturday because I'm just excited! And well my husband is traveling right now too, so the extravert I am needs to talk to someone... okay that sounds strange moving on.

It's time for another EBTKS challenge and this is one I know you can all do really well on. Winter has found some neat inspiration...

The sketch is based off one of those little basket...

Fun huh? I kind of "broke the rules" which is perfectly fine by the way. I wanted to use a labels 1 as the center and the card took on a life of it's own. Once I realized I wanted to use that I remembered that the current Embellish Challenge is for labels, and I love the colors ... so I used two challenges. Seriously this is exactly how my thought process goes for these things, but the end result is worth it (sometimes).
Stamps: Grainy Background (Unity), Always on the Go Bird (Catslife Press)
Ink: VersaMark (Tsukineko); Burnt Umber (Palette)
Cardstock: Cameo Coral (Stampin' Up!), Sweet Corn, Chocolate Brown (Gina K)
Fabric Tape: Chocolate Brown (e2 Daily)
Buttons: Dark Chocolate (Papertrey Ink)
Also, this weeks sponsor is Lawn Fawn! There is a $25 gift up for grabs for the winner! I know you don't want to miss that! So come play along over on the EBTKS blog.
