Card Sketch #41

It's Thursday, and that means it's card sketch day at Sketches! {by Tamara}. This is my card for Card Sketch #41. Remember if you create a card using Tamara's sketch, be sure to link it back to her site, and you could be her next guest designer! PLUS, Tamara has a call out right now for NEW Card Design Team members! Check out the full details on her site! I LOVE being a member of Tamara's team! It's totally fun for me each week to use her sketches and design a card to be featured on her blog!


I am very pleased with this card, because . . . . I used my NEW Nestabilities!! Woohoo! I used the largest circle to cut the card itself, a scallop circle to cut the sage green card front, and then another circle to cut a mat. I have the Cuttlebug, and I haven't figured out the perfect "sandwich stack" yet, because using the C plate is too thick for me. I cracked a B plate in half. It scared me, it was so loud!! Anyway, back to the card. The papers are My Mind's Eye Wild Asparagus, the stamped frame is a Stampin' Up stamp, and the "thanks a lot" is a $1 Michael's acrylic stamp. I added tiny flowers from a Lisa Bearnson QVC flower kit (I distressed the flowers with ink), and I added some rhinestone centers. The ribbon is a scrap, and I distressed it with ink too. The card and all of the layers have also been distressed with Tim Holtz brushed corduroy ink. I just love this little card! It's less than 4" in diameter. CUTE! You can click on the photo to see an enlarged view of the card.

I have errands to run today. Just lots of miscellaneous things to do! I hope you all have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!!

EDITED TO ADD: I am one of five winners over at Lesli's Dragonfly Time site! Thank you to everyone who voted for my layouts, and thank you to Lesli! There were amazing layouts submitted, and I'm honored to be among the winners. THANKS!!

Ohhhh this is nice! At first I thought the background redish paper went with it because it matched so good but without it is great too! Great color combos!
