Card Patterns Sketch 108...

Hello!!! I managed to squeeze in a few minutes last night to whip up Seth's birthday card. I was perusing the blog world for some sketch inspiration and ran across this week's sketch from Card Patterns. I liked it, a lot, and decided to use it for his card. Here's the sketch...

I liked the circles and clean lines in this sketch and stuck pretty close to it with my card.

The patterned paper, cardstock stickers and twine are from Jillibean Soup (Soup Staples and Spotted Owl Soup). Instead of a circle at the top I cut out the largest of the Scrap-Mart Exclusive Ovalsquare Label and trimmed it to fit. Then I ran some crinkled ribbon, added my embellishments. The numbers are adhered with foam dots to give added dimension. To finish the card off I hung the tag around the bows using the bakers twine then stuck the star sticker and two gems in the lower right corner.

I loved how it turned out and I just know Seth will too! I'm enjoying trying to incorporate challenges into my crafting projects. I mean, I'm crafting anyway so I might as well try to have some fun too, right?! Thanks for stoppin' by! I'm off to work on Seth's coupon book...gotta get it done so I can give it to him tonight. :)
