card patterns sketch #47

I haven't played with a card patterns sketch for a few weeks so thought I'd play along. Card patterns was the first challenge blog of any kind that I tried. I even made the guest designer awhile back and the super six a couple of times. They always have great sketches and the dt always has tons of inspiration.

I was in a whimsical,  playful mood while I was making this card. I totally love these colors and the card came together quite quickly. The turquoise polka dot paper is from the house of 3 simply amazing kit. I love the papers in this kit! I want to use them on every card! The image is from the brand spankin' new set from Papertrey ink called through the trees. This is one awesome tree set and I think they need to do a companion set :) Just my opinion mind you! I have already just tonight made three cards with it! This particular tree comes in two pieces so you can stamp the tree in one color and the leaves in another. I will post the deets below to save my rambling on and on .......

Once again.. thanks for looking and have a great day!
