Cute Card Thursday Challenge 57

The theme this week was Getting Edgy and we were to use torn paper or somthing similar to creat an interesting edge.
I chose to go with torn paper to create the effect and used a floral paper in shades of brown and beige. The ribon is a golden colour that lifts the card. I chose a soft yellow and beige paper as the long strip and tore all the edges, the pale square on the top blends well with the strip and the floral motif has an interesting scollped edge to it. The darker beige square blends well with the background paper and the bear is stamped on a pale cream paper. Tearing the edges of the image gives it a softer look and adds interest. I used three star shaped buttons in contrasting colours that go well with all the papers I used. The flower creates a new element that brightens the overall look as do the yellow flowers the bear is holding. The Text Get Well Soon also has an interesting shape to its edges.
Not having a sketch to work with adds to the challenge as you have to think of a layout for the card as well as how you will exicute the theme given to you.
