A Double Challenge Shot

The Play Date Cafe has a color challenge this week that I had to try. I've never done a PDC Challenge before, so I thought I'd try. The colors are shown below my card. I think I got pretty close. 
 
The papers I used are Basic Grey Nook & Pantry. I've hardly used it before, but I'm on a mission to use what I have! These were perfect for the challenge! 
Instead of an image, I wanted to use a sentiment. Unity of course! I grabbed a scrap of white cs (good girl ;) ) and stamped and cut it out with a Nestability die. It wasn't until I mounted it that I noticed I had grabbed a piece of shimmer cardstock from SU. I wouldn't have done that on purpose, but it was a very happy accident! I layered that with a piece of dp cut with a PTI die.
 I didn't have any twine with yellow, so I kind of made my own ;) . I used white crochet thread, and I used a yellow Copic to add little lines. I saw that idea on a blog somewhere, but I'm sorry I can't remember where. On one corner I layered a tiny button on a bigger one. I love layering buttons. It adds just a little extra somethin'. 
I can't forget to mention the layout came from Deconstructing Jen's Deconstructed Sketch #8.
