Card Patterns Sketch #160--Sponsored by Prickley Pear


Hello, friends!  I hope you're having a great start to your weekend.  There's a new sketch up at Card Patterns today, and we hope you'll play along!  


This week we're sponsored by Prickley Pear, and they provided the designers with a care package of cute rubber stamps.  I chose to work with this sweet little Duck in Tub image.  I colored it with my Prisma pencils and cut it out with a Spellbinders oval die.

The polka dot paper is from Echo Park's Dots & Stripes Homefront collection, and I debossed polka dots on the white cardstock behind it too.

The "Happy" part of the sentiment is from PTI's Birthday Basics, and the word "Easter" is from WPlus9's Spring Post.  I added a So Saffron bow in the top corner and a tiny scalloped border under the sentiment.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (White), Stampin' Up! (So Saffron)
Patterned paper:  Echo Park (Dots & Stripes Homefront)
Stamps:  Prickley Pear (Duck in Tub), Papertrey Ink (Birthday Basics), WPlus9 (Spring Post)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Chocolate Chip)
Tools:  Spellbinders (oval die), Papertrey Ink (banner die, polka dot impression plate), Fiskars (border punch), corner rounder
Accessories: Stampin' Up! (ribbon)
Coloring medium:  Prismacolor Premier pencils

Happy Easter and Passover to all of you who will be celebrating this weekend!  Thanks for your visit!
