Card Patterns - Sketch 113

Friday, May 6, 2011

Another fabulous sketch at Card Patterns this week, I love this layout!! The colors I used are from Color Combos Galore inspiration board #190, I missed the deadline due to "broadband issues"!!

Here's the pretty color combo, I love these together. Very soft and calming!

The big butterfly die is from Marianne Design. You might have noticed I've become a bit addicted to these pretty flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, I love the movement in the petals.

I used a section from Very Vintage Labels 18 by Waltzingmouse Stamps to stamp the label, the sentiment is from Fancy Phrases. There is a little mini clothes peg clipped to the tag, I painted it with some white paint.

I embossed the blue paper using In Stitches embossing folder and lightly sanded the top. I used the Swiss dots embossing folder on the semi-circle section at the top.

I'll have a couple of cards for you tomorrow, one for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and I'm guest designer for the month of May at Just Us Girls Challenge! I'm so delighted they asked me, it's a great challenge blog with a very talented DT. See you then!
