I am a big fan of combining hard and soft elements on a page. Here is one that I created at the end of last month, based on a colour challenge created by the lovely Sara at Scrapbook Savvy last month. I managed to create the LO in time, but I forgot to upload it in time for the challenge.... oh well, I'm very pleased with how the LO turned out.
When I say combining hard with soft, this usually involves some Purple Pumpkin as the buttons and felties create a soft element, combined with the twine and then I put some chippy and a charm as my hard element.
Here is the final creation.
