Card Sketch #37

Spring break has confused me! I seriously thought YESTERDAY was Wednesday! Nope, it was Thursday, and that means it was card sketch day on the Sketches! {by Tamara} site! Remember, if you do the sketch, link it back to Tamara's site. She is featuring guest designers now, and you could be the next one! Here's my card for card sketch #37.


All of the circles on the sketch had me a little stumped at first. Once I decided on the two circles that I wanted to use, using flowers for the other circles seemed so logical! I'm thrilled with how quickly this card just fell into place after that! The background patterned paper is Provo Craft from a Slab. The "love" and "beautiful you" circles plus the striped border on the bottom of the card front are all from a Christina Cole border stickers pack. The "amazing" was cut with my QuicKutz khaki alphabet. Last, but not least, I added gorgeous Primas. I really LOVE the way this card turned out!

Last day of spring break for my girls. They're back to school on Monday. I love having them at home, so I will be counting down the days until June and summer vacation! We NEED to do something REALLY fun today! Thanks for stopping by!!

Love the colours on this card, love the lettering for the "amazing" too.

Your card has finally gone in the post today along with a couple of other bits and bobs! Hope it arrives safe.

Enjoy your last few days of Spring break. We still have another week yet and my two are already driving each other nuts. They need to get out but the weather has been terrible. I'm so hoping it's going to dry up long enough to get them out and about a bit next week or there could be trouble!! :-)
