Card Patterns sketch #169--Sponsored by Annabelle Stamps


Hi there!  How's your weekend going so far?  I'm still entertaining my parents for a few more days, plus my hubby is away at a conference in New Mexico.  As much as I love the summer, it definitely wreaks havoc on my schedule!

In my few free minutes today, I thought I'd pop in and share my card for this week's Card Patterns sketch.


We're sponsored this week by Annabelle Stamps.  Thanks to Annabelle for providing the DT with stamps for our projects this week!


I used the sweet Dotted Flowers set to paper piece a vase and fill it with flowers, then stamped a sentiment from the set.

I used papers from My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy Girl collection, which inspired my color palette of aqua, coral, and espresso.

Cardstock:  Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist, Berry Sorbet), WPlus9 (White)
Patterned paper:  My Mind's Eye (Fine and Dandy Girl)
Stamps:  Annabelle Stamps (Dotted Flowers)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Pool Party, Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso), Copic marker
Tools:  Spellbinders (circle die), Papertrey Ink (polka dot impression plate)
Accessories:  Papertrey Ink (ribbon)

Stop by the Card Patterns blog to see the rest of the DT samples and to enter your creation for this week.

Thanks for your visit!  Have a great day!
