Card Patterns Sketch #133

Good morning!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  I'm still struggling with my laptop crashing, but this time, the Geek Squad think they can fix it and recover my data.  Time will tell.  I managed to retake my photos and load everything I needed to my main computer so I'm able to share my DT card for this week's Card Patterns sketch.  This week's challenge is sponsored by Sparkle Creations.  You should definitely check out all of the adorable stamps in Sparkle's store!

And here is my take on the sketch:

I flipped the sketch to vertical.  Sparkle generously provided some images for the DT to use for our cards.  I chose this super cute image called Backpack Oliver for mine.  I started with a card base of SU Blue Bayou and layered with GKD Cranberry Tart and patterned paper from the Basic Grey Oliver 6x6 pad.  I colored Oliver with Copic Markers.  The image was cut out and matted with Spellbinders Scallop and Classic Petite Ovals Nestabilities.  A few coordinating brads finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Card Patterns Sketch Blog and check out the fabulous samples from my incredibly talented CP teammates, some of the Sparkle Creations DT and our wonderful CP Guest Designer, Monika.  We'd love to have you play along with us!

Have a wonderful weekend!
