Card Sketch #59 - The LAST One!

It's card sketch day at Sketches! {by Tamara}, and this is my card for Card Sketch #59. Be sure to check out what all of the other card designers created, because they're fantastic! Also, if you create a card using Tamara's sketch, be sure to link it back to her site. You could be her next featured guest designer! Plus, she also posts the linked back creations! Sadly, this is my last card for Tamara! I've really enjoyed being a part of the card team! Happily, I will be staying with the site, and I will be creating layouts for her Recipe Challenges! I'm thrilled!


I received the patterned paper on this card as a RAK, and I totally let it inspire me to create this card. I wanted to use the foam thickers. I got them from Chris as a RAK/prize for a 4 Scrappy Sisters challenge that I won. The four black squares are Cuttlebug swiss dot embossed. I added two stacked Prima Sprites, and used a black Making Memories brad in the center. Last, I added some dotted ribbon from Michael's. I chalked ink distressed the card front. I really love this color combination!

Well, it's my husband's birthday on Saturday, and I really don't have it together for that, so I need to run out and see if I can pick up a couple of presents. The girls and I are also having the hardest time with this EARLY school schedule! We're all still so tired when we get up! I also need to do a lot of cleaning around the house and grocery shop. So, off I go! Have a GREAT day, and thanks for stopping by!
