It's still Friday!

I can still post my Friday's blogger challenge! I have missed a few weeks due to the holidays but had it on my goal list for today to participate this week. I'm not sure how I feel about this card....love it-hate it kind of thing. What do YOU think?
Our challenge was to use Chocolate chip, Baja Breeze, Red, and white or vanilla. Interesting.....our holiday treasures designer paper had those exact colors in it! Coincidence? I think not! I started with a card base in Baja, added a layer of chocolate chip and then a layer of the holiday treasures DSP. The scallop circles were made with my Big Shot. The paper I used was a scrap and not quite big enough to make both full circles, so one is off center on the edge. I was bound and determined to use that partial scallop! The Thanks is from an upcoming SU stamp set. I stamped it in brown, colored it in with Red ink using my blender pen, and then added some glitz with clear stickles. I had originally put three silver brads in the bottom corner but decided I needed something with more 'presence' so I stuck the red buttons right to the top of the brads using mini glue dots.
I restrain looking at the projects the other BC gals come up with until I am doing posting my own. Now I'm going to look. I really like these colors togther and can't wait to see what they all came up with!
Happy Friday!
