Card Patterns sketch 67

Hi all,

My take on Card Patterns Sketch 67:


CS: Base CS is Fabriano; everything else is from my stash;
DP: The pretty patterned paper is an RAK from Tanja.
Others: Stamp is from Hobby Ideas; ribbon and lace from my stash... some faux stitching using my white gel pen and the branch (yeah, it is a branch..LOL) is hand drawn and cut.

It turned out just the way I intended it to so I won't be cribbing this time around ;-). I am in love with all things pleated at the moment, which explains the pleated flowers and ribbon. And I am a lot wiser now so I am stitching up my ribbon treatments before adhering them [because the quality of double-sided tape that we get around here is kind of hopeless!].

Usually I save the sketch on my phone or draw it out in my notebook before starting on the card; this time I tried to test my memory.. I was kind of sure I remembered the sketch wrong... but yoooohooo!! I wasn't wrong!!

  16. hey hi!!
    thanks a ton for your comment! means so much. i still wont be making as many cards as i want to cuz no ac means low bp and a bad attitude for me! and i have been ruining chart papers by cutting them so out of shape that they cant be reused! But this, "the comments" that i get is absolutely great. it makes me feel so alive and kicking and makes me wanna create.
    thanks for the love!

    okay so on to your card! lol
    i love love the bloom! i will have to try this. the colours you have used are great!
