CARD PATTERNS - Sketch 153

Saturday, February 18, 2012

It's time for a new sketch at Card Patterns, there's a great prize up for grabs this week, go check it out. Here's the sketch. (It's open to interpretation, I used two less squares than in the sketch!)

I kept the squares pretty subtle using the same patterned paper from Echo Park Country Drive and just paper piecing them.

I used the gorgeous 'Congratulations' sticker from Fancy Sticker Sentiments - Baby by SRM Stickers. Can you tell I love these fancy stickers! : ) I added it to some acetate. The scalloped border I die cut using Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Scallop.

The colorful flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The turquoise seam binding is from my stash. I was a little braver in my color choices, I'm using more photos as inspiration now, mainly from Pinterest. It's such a wonderful source of inspiration, especially if your mojo's gone walkabout!

The turquoise and off white pearl trinket pin I made, I'll be adding a few extra ones to my Etsy shop later. I have some nice black and off white ones too.

The bottom half of the card I embossed using the Cuttlebug Seeing Spots embossing folder. Don't forget to pop over to the Card Patterns blog to see what my team mates have created and if you have time play along this week to be in with a chance of winning a great prize and to be a guest designer at Card Patterns. I have a list as long as my arm to do this week, so I better make a start!! Enjoy the weekend! : )
