Combining hard with soft.... Anne

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.

Thanks for Looking and I'm working on a sample for the Sketch challenge. Such a fantastic prize, hope to see LOTS of entries. This LO is also kind of where my idea for the sketch 'started' from, but as you can see, it is flipped and sizes and shapes were all played around with.

Love it Anne - you are always so clever combining your embellishments and adding something a little different.
