Card Patterns Sketch #131

Happy Saturday!  I'm sure many of you are already enjoying the long, holiday weekend! We've got lots going on this weekend.  Mostly it's house stuff, but that's OK.  Hopefully we'll have time for some fun and relaxation, too!  Before getting on with all that, I'm popping in here to share my DT card for this week's Card Patterns SketchThis week's sketch challenge is being sponsored by Kim at My Craft Spot

And here is my card:

Kim generously provided the DT with some beautiful hand-dyed seam binding and baker's twine to use on our cards.  I used the Cranberry hand-dyed ribbon and Vintage Cherry baker's twine on mine.  I started with a square cad base of retired SU Blue Bayou and layered with patterned paper from the Webster's Pages Hollywood Vogue/WonderFALL Petite Papers pack.  I cut out the schoolhouse image from the same paper pack with Spellbinders Classic Circle Nestabilities and layered on dotted patterned paper cut with Spellbinders Scallop Circles Nesties.  The horizontal panel was made by adhering some strip of patterned paper and a Webster's Pages Fabric Ribbon.  I did some stitching around the borders and the strips.  I created a triple loop bow from the Cranberry seam binding using my Bow Easy. I added a button and a little bow of Vintage Cherry baker's twine. A row of adhesive pearls finished my creation.

Thanks for dropping by!  I always appreciate your visits!  Be sure to stop by the Card Patterns Sketch Blog and check out all the fantastic samples created by my incredibly talented teammates!  We'd love to have you play along with us!

Have a wonderful weekend!
