Angela's Wonderful Wood Challenge - PIP #58

This week at Playing in Paradise the challenge is:
 
I have a whole pad of Basic Grey "Life of the Party" papers that I take out, look at, and put away on a semi-regular basis, so I thought they'd be perfect for this challenge.

Supplies: Papers all from Basic Grey "Life of the Party;"
sentiment from MFT;
Versamark, Vintage Photo Distress ink, and clear EP;
wooden buttons from Michaels; bamboo crochet thread
So, I've got woodgrain patterned paper, wooden buttons, and for a bit of a stretch I guess we could say bamboo is a tree? I'm glad I decided to add the buttons & thread, because all I wrote down in my handy-dandy challenge notebook was "woodgrain"...and completely left out the "focal point" part of the challenge. Not reading the complete directions? Totally not something I would ever flake on. Totally. Not.
As always, this challenge runs until Thursday at noon, so pull out your fun wood stuff and link up!
xoxo,
Jessi

What a super idea to use this DP for the challenge (and I really dug through my stash and totally missed that I could have used this!). Great idea for the kiddo paper too!

Lovely card, Jessi. Great LO and use of 'wood'. I'll have to case this for my collection of 'men's cards.

I have wanted that pad just for the brown wood grain paper but then never bought it because of the rest of the designs left me blank!!!
You certainly got the wood grain going on and I'd say the button and orange panel make the perfect focal point :0)
