Card Patterns Sketch #134

Hi there!  Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far!  I'm here to share my DT card for this week's Card Patterns Sketch Challenge.  This week the challenge is sponsored by Catherine Pooler - Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrator. 

Here is my take on Tracy's fabulous sketch:

Catherine generously provided the DT with a package of Stampin' Up products to use for our cards.  I started with an A2-sized card base of Old Olive cardstock and layered with Baja Breeze and a beautiful paper from the Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper collection.  For my middle panel, I punched the bottom layer with the Stampin' Up Scallop Trim punch and layered again with Baja Breeze.  I embossed a layer of Very Vanilla with the Cuttlebug Textile folder and added to the middle layers.  I punched out 1" circles from two other of the Springtime Vintage DSPs and popped them up on foam tape.  A bow of Old Olive Satin Ribbon and a few adhesive pearls finished my design.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Card Patterns blog to see the fantastic creations from my teammates, Catherine Pooler and our very talented Guest Designer, Joanna!  We hope you will be inspired to join us for the challenge!

Have a great weekend!
