Love Is All Around - 2S4U - Kazan's Sketch 9

I love the sketches and the talented ladies that hang out over at the 2 Sketches 4 You site! Another great sketch this week. Here is my card for Kazan's Sketch 9.


The card base is DCWV, and the patterned papers are vibrant Kimberly Hodges papers from K&Company. My entire card was inspired by the gorgeous ribbon that I received as a RAK from Sue at the Paper Crafts blog. I love the five buttons that I sewed on. I added chalk ink distressing too. I'm so pleased with this card! I'm going to give it to my mom the next time that I see her! She'll love it!

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

Hi Carol... I am so glad I found you on Cosmo blog... when I deleted my old blog I lost all my links by accident and have had to try to re-find everyone. I've now added you to my blogroll again so I don't miss any more of your goodies :)

Have a great day
