Triple Play Giveaway 3 & BC, too!

Today's Triple Play Card (from the February 2009 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter) is a double play -- it is the third card in the series of three for the I Brake for Stamps Giveaway, and it is also my Blogger's Challenge Card for this week. The challenge this week was to make a card using Sage Green and Brown (neutrals optional). What a beautiful combination these colors are!
On the flap of this card, I chose to use the postoid ladies in a block, and highlight a few of them with my sage marker. I layered that on a sanded brown piece, and then cuttlebugged the flap and highlighted it with brown. I used a Fiskar's Scallop punch (yes, it has the holes already) on the white, and added a sage cord to cover the "seam." On the main part of the card, I used the Block Collage Technique (February issue of the TJ Newsletter).

Alas, I am sad. I had NO theme music running through my head for this card. I have no witty repartee. No bad puns. Sorry about that! Although, this card just may be my favorite of the trio. something about it in person is really special.
