Card Pattern Sketch #14


Good evening, hope all is well with you. Tonight I have a card made with the Card Pattern Sketch. I just learned about this blog from Sue at Sue's Sentiments. They do a different sketch every week, if you haven't checked it out, you really should. So, I saw this sketch, and knew that for me it would be a little challenging. I'm not used to using small stamps or spaces. I was also inspired by the colors that I used from another blogging friend, but for the life of me, I can't remember who it was or where. I'm so sorry!!! But, when I saw her card, I fell in love with it. It was all browns with a touch of red. I used a little more red, but really like the results. The stamps are from Hanna Stamps. It's called Cafe' Hanna. I used DCWV cs in brown bling, the dp was in my stash, so I don't know who it's by. I used my scallop nesties for the squares, and a 1" punch for the small square. I used the same tan cs from the squares to cut the bottom strip and scalloped it with a corner rounder. The buttons are from the bag o buttons from Joann's. I used hemp twine to tie the centers. I inked the edges of the squares and scallop piece with cranberry color box ink. The images are stamped in Timber Brown Staz-On. I also distressed the edges with my scissors. Hope you like it, and thanks for looking.

I really like this one. I tend to use larger images so I love the look of smaller ones. And what a fun layout too.
