Card Sketch #46

It's Thursday, so it's card sketch day at Sketches! {by Tamara}. This is my card for Card Sketch #46. As always, I love the sketch! Be sure to check out the cards by the other design team members. If you work with the sketch, link it back to Tamara's site, and YOU could be her next guest designer!


I got this Delight In Life Stampin' Up set from my wonderful blogging friend Jana! I used it a few times, and then it was lovingly cast aside. Well, my SBS2 sister Michelle inspired me to get this set back out and create more cards with it. Michelle recently posted a couple of cards using this set, and she stamped the flowers on patterned paper. Now, why didn't I think of that? The card front is ticket punched and Cuttlebug embossed with the swiss dots embossing folder. I added some twill around the card front (thanks again to Jana for the twill!!), some brads were added, and a flower rhinestone was used on the flower stack. The patterned papers are My Mind's Eye.

Today is the last full day of school for my girls. My youngest has a field day for most of the day, and then I will be going to her awards' assembly at 1 p.m. It will be interesting to see if she is the recipient of any awards. It's going to be a beautiful day here today. I could have this 70 degree weather with a nice breeze all year round! Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous card. Love love love the dots! That delight in life flower is such a classic it's popping up everywhere. It looks extra adorable on the dp. Got to go check 'em out on Michele's blog... :0)

This card is so sweet. The twill bow is the perfect touch.

Very pretty! I really need to use that set more often!
If it makes you feel better, I sold Totally Cool, so temptation removed! LOL

I learn something new all the time..I am definitely going to try stamping on patterned paper. Would never have thought of it on my own.

Love the card and especially your use of the twill tape. hmm...going to have to dig around in my sewing stash to see if I have any.

Beautiful card! I've been wanting that embossing folder forever, just can never find it anywhere (and I'm not willing to pay shipping, just yet)

I love what you did with the twill ribbon and the brads.
