Just Thinking of You...

Hey friend!  Today is a brand new Card Patterns sketch and it's a great one!  Our fabulous sponsor this week is Layers of Color!  Oh my love this butterfly!

I started by distressing my patterned paper panel with white paint.  After adhering that to my card front, I cut another strip and snipped the ends for the banner look.

Distressed a doily and adhered it to the top of my card along with some seam binding I bought from this Etsy shop

Colored my image in with Copic markers with two different colors on two seperate images, cut the yellow out and popped them up!  Distressed the circle with Walnut Stain Distress ink, stamped a sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Embellishments set and adhered it to my card with foam.

Die cut a leaf image from Chartreuse cardstock and tucked it under my image.and added some pearls!

I do hope you play along with us this week!
