Hello, friends! It's been a little quiet around here, as we still have visitors and my kids are home for winter break. I love having them home, but I'm looking forward to getting back to a normal routine next week!
Happily, I did find some time this week to play with a new sketch at Card Patterns, which I think you're going to love.
This week we are sponsored again by My Favorite Things. They have a wonderful collection of clear stamps and exclusive dies, and they were kind enough to provide the Design Team with some goodies to use on our cards. I chose the Polka Dot Greetings stamp set, which also comes with a coordinating die.
To make a unique scalloped border, I stamped just the ends of one of the polka dot frames along the bottom of the white cardstock panel using Calypso Coral ink. I added a stitched strip of Pool Party cardstock and some Pool Party ruffled ribbon.
The flower was made using PTI's Beautiful Blooms dies and an Aqua Mist button. I added a cute, scripty sentiment from Polka Dot Greetings in Island Indigo ink.
The whole panel is mounted on an Island Indigo card base, and I tucked some small strips of polka dot aqua paper from PTI's Library Ledger at the ends.
Cardstock: Stampin' Up! (Island Indigo, Calypso Coral, Pool Party), Papertrey Ink (White)
Patterned paper: Papertrey Ink (Library Ledger)

I love how this turned out, especially this fun color combo. I hope you'll find some time to play along with the sketch this week, too!
