Well friends, the time has come. Sadly, the Card Patterns Sketch Challenge is closing its doors, leaving you today with one final sketch. I hope you'll join me this week in saying a huge thank you to Michelle and Tracy for sharing 172 fabulous sketches with us, including this beauty:
I kept my card fairly simple to keep the focus on this gorgeous flower from Waltzingmouse's Roses in Bloom. I stamped the flower and leaf twice onto papers from My Mind's Eye and cut them out, popping up a second layer of central petals on the rose.
The background pattern was created using a stamp from The Craft's Meow's Retro Foundations.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Kraft), WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye (Quite Contrary)
Stamps: Waltzingmouse (Roses in Bloom), The Craft's Meow (Retro Foundations), Papertrey Ink (Iconic Images)
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Chocolate Chip, So Saffron)

I am so thankful to Tracy and Michelle for inviting me to be a part of the Card Patterns challenge for the past 6 months. Sketches are always the most difficult challenges for me, but I have thoroughly enjoyed being on this team and stretching myself creatively. The weekly inspiration at Card Patterns will definitely be missed!
I hope you'll join us one more time and link up your creation at the Card Patterns blog!
