Hello, friends! I hope you're enjoying your weekend so far! I'm just popping in to share my card for this week's Card Patterns sketch, which is another "keeper".
Our sponsor this week is a wonderful shop I recently discovered called Freckled Fawn, and they carry a fabulous assortment of washi tapes and accessories. They've generously offered up a gift certificate to a random participant this week, so be sure to enter your creation for a chance to win!
For the Design Team, this was a "stash" week, meaning we were free to use any supplies we wanted on our design. I decided to make a card for my little guy, who had his last day of preschool on Friday (sniff, sniff). His favorite color is green, so I used SU's Garden Green as my card base, masking and stamping a panel of chevrons in Versamark.
The focal image is an assortment of stamps from Paper Smooches' Smarty Pants set, which I stamped and colored with Copics.
I was stumped for a while about what to use for the banner element of the sketch, and I would have loved to use a ruler, but I settled for a strip of grid patterned paper from Fancy Pants' Off to School collection. I punched a hole in each end and wrapped it with baker's twine.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (True Black, White), Stampin' Up! (Garden Green)
Patterned paper: Fancy Pants Design (Off to School)
Stamps: Paper Smooches (Smarty Pants), Lawn Fawn (Chevron Backdrops)

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back soon to share the card sets I made for my son's teachers.
Have a good one!
