Best Wishes

Happy Saturday friend!  Today is my debut over at CardPatterns and I am very excited to share my card with you!  I love this sketch and I hope you do too, enough to play along with us.  The sponsor for this sketch is none other than TiffanyDoodles!  Tiff does such an amazing job with her images and well, she is just the nicest person too!  She is offering up a chance to win some of them.  Here is my card using one of the DoodlesBlooms from her 7 collection.

I started with a 5x5 card base and added some fun paper from My Mind's Eye's Fine & Dandy Tickled Pink.  On top of that I added some paper from the Fine & Dandy True Blue line and then added squares from the girl pad.

I die cut a scallop from Aqua Mist (PTI) cardstock using my Spellbinders.  Printed off the flower and die cut it with a plain circle Nestabilities.  Colored it with Copic Markers and added some glitz with a Spica Pen adhered the two together.

I added some Aqua Mist grosgrain ribbon and some twine and attached my focal image.  Stamped my sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed with some Brown powder from American Crafts

Thank you thank you thank you for all of your well wishes and sweet comments lately!  I appreciate you more than words could say.  You make my journey all the more sweet.  Have a wonderful day!
