Tuesday Trigger: Treat Yourself!

Card: Here's my take on this week's Tuesday Trigger: Treat Yourself! I was inspired by the layers and the different shades of brown. I dug out several different sheets of brown/tan patterned paper and cardstock and used 3 different border punches to create the strips. I was going to do a die cut label and put it in the center of the card, but then I realized that that would take away from the layered strip effect. Then I realized that I had some space up at the top for the sentiment. It looked a little lost up there, so I added a pop of color to draw the eye back up to the sentiment.
Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Blackbird
Stamps: Hero Arts- Thinking of You Messages (sentiment)
Paper: American Crafts- Botanique, Recollections, My Mind's Eye- Stella and Rose
Punch: Fiskars Apron Lace Border Punch, Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment border punch, Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch, We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, Recollections mini heart punch

Song of the day: "Happy"- Leona Lewis.
