card patterns sketch #11 guest designer

I am so honored to be picked for the card patterns guest designer for this week. I didn't find out until Wednesday so I had just a couple of days to do the sketch and it just happened to be a busy week for me!! So my card was made from the left overs I had on my desk from the last few cards. I told you it would have pink~!! I loved this sketch and just wished I had more time to play with it!! It has sooo many possibilities. I always need birthday cards as I send one to every woman in our church to wish them a great day. It is a BIG feat as we have a big church but I enjoy doing it and totally making their day! That is why my cards tend to always be on the feminine side. I really need to get some manly mojo goin' tho!! Stamps are from hero arts and papertreyink. I used my brand new die from spellbinders that I just got... I love this die and can totally see myself using it ALOT!! I die cut the main image and another one of the same size from a piece of spring moss bitty dots paper and just offset it a bit to mat. I stamped the swirl image from pti's beyond basic borders in vintage cream ink randomly on the kraft cardstock for a background. Stamped the sentiment from pti's damask designs in true black. The butterfly is from hero arts, stamped with true black on a scrap of that awesome house of 3 paper that I love and cut out. Adhere with dimensional, add a few pearls and viola!! a birthday card in no time!! I'm off to check the mail and see if I got any new stamps yet.. I ordered some new heroarts, some new papertrey ink and some from my cute stamps... I get so excited when my packages come... like when I was a kid at christmas!!!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!!
