Card Patterns sketch #148--Sponsored by Clear Dollar Stamps

Hello friends!  I hope you're having a great weekend so far.  I'm back to share a new Card Patterns sketch with you, and I really love this one!

We were provided with some wonderful digital images from Clear Dollar Stamps to use on our cards this week.  I chose a pretty stained glass lamp and sentiment from the set called Let Your Light Shine.

I printed the lamp onto white cardstock, colored it with Copics, then cut it out with a circle Nestie.  I added a yellow scalloped circle mat to add a "glow" around the lamp and some blue gems to reflect the natural light.

For the background panels, I debossed strips of Pool Party cardstock using both sides of PTI's Diamonds impression plate, then alternated the patterns on the card base and stitched them in place.  

The sentiment is one of several included in this digital stamp set.  I printed it onto white cardstock, trimmed it and notched one end, and attached it to the card base.  

In place of the scalloped border on the left side of the sketch, I let the scalloped circle extend off the side.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Pool Party, Daffodil Delight), Papertrey Ink (Hawaiian Shores, white)
Digital Stamps:  (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Ink:  Copic markers
Tools:  Spellbinders (circle, scalloped circle dies), Papertrey Ink (Diamonds impression plate)
Accessories:  Me & My Big Ideas (gems), thread

You can find all of the DT samples and details about this week's challenge and sponsor on the Card Patterns blog!

Thanks for visiting today!
