Card Patterns Sketch Challenge 138

When I saw this week's Card Patterns challenge sketch I fell in love instantly.  I stepped a bit out of my comfort zone and decided to try to cut a doily using one of my cartridges.  Paper Lace is one that I've had for quite some time, and while I've been using it more recently because it has a great chunky font, I haven't given the other images much attention.  I'm glad I decided to use it because there are some gorgeous doilies on this cart!  I cut this one out at at 5 1/2 inches using a multi cut and it cut out very well.  I really love this card.  It's very different from anything I've made before.  I've had this ribbon in my stash for about six months now.  I found it at a local scrapbook store my best friend turned me onto.  I used my glue gun to cinch the words closer together and then to adhere the ribbon across the top of the card.  And just for my sister - I used my brand new hot glue gun and didn't burn myself once.  So there!

The Front:


The butterflies were cut from Cupcake Wrappers - believe it or not it's designed to be a cupcake topper! I inked the butterflies' edges with Soft Suede (Stampin' Up) and added a flower cut from Art Philosophy.  It's hard to go wrong with that cart, there are so many versatile images on it.


The Back:


I definitely feel like I'm in the zone.  It's been a good couple of weeks of crafting.  I'm excited to see what I can come up with next!

Recipe:
Paper:  Kraft Paper, DCWV Stripes, Plaids and Dots,  Coordinations Vintage Blue, Stampin' Up Natural White
Cartridges:  Paper Lace, Art Philosophy, Cupcake Wrappers
Other embellishments:  Ribbon (my stash), Pearls (my stash)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
