A deceptively easy-looking card I made for today's colour challenge- deceptive because I always find it a huge challenge to do the math to centre three objects, especially when I have to punch them out and can't nudge them afterwards! Anyway, after a bit of trial and error, I managed to get three circles pretty much centred in the chocolate chip cs, then embossed that piece for the dessert option. I attached some celery ribbon I have first across the whole length of the chocolate cs. I then carefully placed some sticky strip on the backsides of the ribbon between each hole, then cut the ribbon between the holes and tucked them around the sides of each hole. Then I added two border-punched pieces of celery behind the chocolate panel. I stamped the silhouette images in crumb cake and chocolate chip on a piece of whisper white, then adhered that to the chocolate panel with foam stickers. Finally attached the whole thing to the front of the card and added a little strip of crumb cake underneath. I was going to add a much bigger piece of embossed crumb cake behind the panel, but it seemed to look better with a more CAS approach... That seems to be the case lately- the more I take off the card the better it looks!

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
