Card Sketch #44

It's Thursday, and that is card sketch day at Sketches! {by Tamara}. Here is my card for Card Sketch #44. The sketch was for a 3x3 card. The sketches are a starting point to inspire you, and you don't HAVE TO follow it exactly. In fact, I didn't need to make my card a 3x3 if I didn't want to. However, I did make it a 3x3, because I love this size! Don't forget to link your card back to Tamara's site if you create a card using her sketch. YOU could be her next guest designer!


I used some My Mind's Eye paper that I really love. I like the blue/brown color combination. I added some dotted ribbon from Michael's, a Autumn Leaves acrylic word/swirl stamp, some rhinestones, and I was done! Easy as can be!

I hope you all have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!

Great mini-card. The polka dots and the bling are the perfect pair.

Cute - I like the colors!
How much are you loving the MME Magnolia paper??? Did you pick up the big slab at Archivers during Nat'l. Scrap Weekend? I couldn't resist and I'm glad I didn't!
