Card Club - March - Paint Chips

Here's a card made with a paint chip.  I punched the flowers from the chip which gave me the 3 coordinating colors.  I will see what the girls do with their chip tonight.  I mounted a yellow handmade paper flower in the centre.  I placed the colored then the yellow and used a push pin to made a hole in the greeting layer. I inserted a tiny black brad to hold the flowers in place and spread the prongs to the back. I wrapped the thread around the greeting layer and tied it in a knot on the front and trimmed the ends.  A bit a tape in the back will prevent the sliding of the threads.  This greeting layer was then adhered to the black card.    If you don't have a punch you can just trim the paint chip into a rectangular shape.  I trimmed the white strip off the top and bottom and made the colored shapes square.
