Card Patterns #159--Sponsored by Designed2Delight

This is my second post of the day.  To see my 12 Kits of Christmas post, click HERE!



Hello Card Patterns fans!  Are you ready for a new sketch?  I think you're going to love this one (but I think that every week!).  We have a fabulous sponsor, Designed2Delight Digital Stamps and Papers, who generously provided the designers with some of their hand-drawn images to use on our cards.  Thanks, Designed2Delight!


I've been trying to use some of the patterned papers I've been hoarding forever, and I knew I had just the right ones to go with this cute strawberry digital stamp.  I printed the berries onto white cardstock and cut them out with an oval die, then colored the image with my Prisma pencils and OMS.

The papers are from an oldie but goodie, Cosmo Cricket's Garden Variety.  Don't you just love the smiling faces on those berries and bees?  I added some twill ribbon, baker's twine, and a trio of red buttons for embellishment and left off the sentiment so this can be an all-purpose greeting.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Pure Poppy, White)
Patterned paper:  Cosmo Cricket (Garden Variety Mini Deck)
Stamp:  Designed2Delight (Strawberries)
Tools:  Spellbinders (oval die), Fiskars (border punch)
Accessories:  A.C. Moore (ribbon), The Twinery (Maraschino baker's twine), Papertrey Ink (buttons), thread
Coloring medium:  Prismacolor Premier pencils

Hop over to the Card Patterns blog to find out how you can win some digital goodies from Designed2Delight and check out the rest of the DT creations with this week's sketch.
