JustRite Friday Challenge #44 - Color Challenge

I was a little perplexed with this week's challenge at JustRite Inspiration??  I could not for the life of me think of what to do with these colors.  Then, it hit me today when I was do laundry and I picked up these jeans with brown stitching on the pockets and THAT WAS IT!!  (Needless to say, I didn't finish the laundry -- lol) Here are the colors so you can see what I'm talking about:

I bought this pocket stamp from the Heartfelt Creations booth a few months ago at a local craft fair and hadn't been inspired to use it yet.  I love this pocket!!  Here's my take on it:

The paper is Core'dinations and it is perfect to replicate denim!  Just a little sanding on the edges is the perfect touch to make it look more authentic.  I had trouble getting the brown stitching to show up and I don't have a sewing machine (yet) so I came up with a great solution!  I started by stitching with my white Sakura pen and THEN I went back over with the brown one.  The white stitching showed up a lot better but the brown went with the color scheme.

Next, I stamped an image from JustRite Plant A Little Love 3-1/4" in Momento Rich Cocoa ink on white paper.  I stamped a total of 5 times (3 for the main images and 2 for added layers).  I colored with my COPICs and popped them as shown.  I also added a little brown Ultra Fine Flower Soft  and Gold Stickles to the the centers.

For the sentiment, I chose a center from JustRite Seeds Of Kindness 1-5/8" and accented with a rust Spellbinders Large Petite Scallop border and a little shading with matching COPICs.  I think this is one of my favorite cards so far?!?  TFL!!
