Card Patterns #142

Hello!  I hope your weekend is off to a great start!  If you are looking for my card for the CSS Alumni Blog Hop, please scroll down one post.  I'm popping in quick to share my DT card for this week's Card Patterns Sketch.  This week, we are being sponsored again by Catherine Pooler, Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrator.

Here is my take on the sketch:

Catherine generously provided the DT with some beautiful Stampin' Up products to use for our cards.  I started with a card base of Garden Green and layered with Early Expresso and papers from the Woodland Walk Designer Series Papers pack.  I stamped the bird from SU Friends 24-7 onto Very Vanilla with Memento Rich Cocoa and Tuxedo Black and colored it lightly with Copic markers.  It was cut out and popped up on foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment, also from Friends 24-7, with Early Expresso onto Very Vanilla and cut it out and matted it with Spellbinders Scallop and Classic Circle Nestabilities.  I punched the Vanilla border with the SU Scallop Trim Border Punch and added some Early Expresso ribbon.  A few vanilla pearls finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Card Patterns blog and check out the gorgeous creations from my teammates and our wonderful Guest Designer, Krystyna!  We hope you'll be inspired to play along with us!

Have a great weekend!
