Oh my gosh, I've been busting at the seams to share my news with you! I am delighted to report that...I received an invitation to join the Create with Connie & Mary Thursday Design Team!! This is a huge honor to me as I have been playing along with their challenges for awhile and find them among my faves. Now, I am excited to share them with you! OK, enough about me (LOL) you came here for a card and a card you shall have but first...this week's challenge! It's a sketch challenge--don't you just love sketches?
I flipped the sketch on it's side and made this:
Isn't it happy?! Last week I was working on a big project with the Playful Polka Dots Simply Scrappin' Kit and many of the elements on today's card are left-overs from the kit...
including this big Daffodil Delight polka dot scalloped circle onto which I layered three Rose Red flowers from Fabulous Florets. I tucked in a few polka dot leaves from the kit--love how they repeat the polka dots in the circle and the embossed background. And what is my favorite companion pattern to polka dots?Why stripes of course! This fun paper is just one of the great patterns included exclusively in the Simply Scrappin' kit. Aren't those colors great together? The banner tag was cut from the Petal Cone die and stamped in Old Olive with a sentiment from Happy Greetings.
and I used an left-over piece on the inside trimmed out with a Rose Red scallop ribbon border.In lieu of the two brads from the sketch, I used the polka dot embossing folder and wrapped the whole front panel in some yummy Rose Red seam binding ribbon. Love how this ribbon ties so easily! Thank you for stopping by today and sharing in my happy news! Be sure to stop by and see what the other Create with Connie & Mary Design Team members did with this week's sketch--you'll find tons of inspiration! We hope you'll play along with us!
