2 Sketches 4 You #60

Hi again! If you didn't see my earlier post, be sure to scroll down to see what fabulous Design Team I will be joining next month!

This week, Laura posted a simple but versatile sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You which I finally found time to play with.

I had a killer headache this morning, so I decided to keep things fairly uncomplicated by choosing several papers from the same line and giving them a quilted look. I added a sentiment on a label and tucked it behind a strip of looped Aqua Mist ribbon and a button. I added three more buttons to one corner to balance it out.

Cardstock: Bazzill (kraft)
Patterned paper: DCWV (The Linen Closet stack)
Stamp: unknown
Ink: Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate)
Tools: Spellbinders (Labels 1 die)
Accessories: Papertrey Ink (ribbon, buttons), DMC floss, thread

Those ribbon loops are so lovely, I could stare at them all day! I really love this technique, and it always looks much nicer than my bows! In hindsight, I wish I had rounded the corners of the card, but I always think of that after it's too late.

I have one more card to post tonight, so I hope you'll stop by again later! See you soon!
