A different kind of card

My style is usually clean and simple. I challenged myself to try something different. I still can't get the collage look work for me. But, I did try something a little different with my submission to Kristina's Color Challenge #52, StampTV Friday Potluck Challenge using scraps, and I loosely interpreted CardPattern's sketch this week. Here are Kristina's colors:


Card Patterns' Sketch:

This was a quick card using scraps from the Friends and Flowers Simply Scrappin' Kit by SU. As I was making this, my girls kept commenting how crooked everything was :-). Well, not quite. Notice how the letters and the background DSP are still straight. It was fun and I will have to try this "funky" look again.
