Card Patterns sketch #164--Sponsored by Prickley Pear


Welcome back, friends!  It's been a busy week here, and my house is a disaster!  LOL!  My kids love to draw, color, and craft, which is great, but their art supplies are all over the house by the end of the week.  

Before tackling my chores, I thought I'd pop in and share our new sketch at Card Patterns.  


This week we're sponsored by Prickley Pear, who generously provided the DT with some fun rubber stamps to use on our projects.  I got to work with a cute background stamp called Owls ATC and the "My Cutie" sentiment.

I decided to make a little tag by stamping the owls onto white cardstock before cutting them out with a tag die.  I added some color with Copics to match this fabulous yellow V-striped twill ribbon from The Ribbon Carousel and some bitty dot patterned paper from PTI.

I stamped the sentiment onto a scalloped circle and added some accents with a Copic marker.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (White)
Patterned paper:  Papertrey Ink (2008 Bitty Dots)
Stamps:  Prickley Pear (Owls ATC, sentiment)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Chocolate Chip), Copic markers
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (tag die), Spellbinders (scalloped circle die)
Accessories:  The Ribbon Carousel (V-striped twill ribbon), The Twinery (baker's twine), Papertrey Ink (button), DMC floss

Hop on over to Card Patterns to check out the rest of the DT samples and find out more about this week's prize from Prickley Pear!

Thanks for visiting, friends!  I hope your weekend is off to a great start!

You are killing me with those owls. Love this sweet tag, and the way you colored. I guess I'd better play along and try to win some of those owls for myself.

Absolutely adorable Christina! For the past week I had been picking up/cleaning my house for a party that lasts like two hours! So much hard work for so little fun time.
