Card Patterns Sketch 61 - Sponsored By LIMELIGHT!



Happy Saturday, friends! Today I have a special card for you that I made using the Card Patterns Sketch for this week! Limelight Papercrafts is proud to be sponsoring this week's CPS, and I know you are going to find this sketch to be a DREAM to work with! I cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with!

I am super-happy with my card, and I have been anxious to share it with you! I started with a Dark Chocolate Base, then matted on a piece of **NEW** Jillibean Soup kraft patterned paper. This paper, certainly one of my favorites, is New England Chowder - Fresh Thyme. I stamped the "cute as a BUTTON" sentiment (which is, in fact, cute as a button!) onto another strip of Dark Chocolate in Vintage Cream. The sentiment is from the April Unity Store Kit, Super Sweet and Stuck on You. (We have plenty of these in stock now and ready to ship!) The Scalloped Border was punched from Lemon Tart.

Now...did you SEE that adorable canvas flower?!? It's new from Jillibean Soup, too! This is the Brown Letters Canvas Flower... You may not be able to tell from the picture, but these are not too thin, not too thick, but SUPER STURDY! Love it! I added a button and some Natural Burlap String to the middle. Done! Great sketch, isn't it?



Of course you know Limelight is offering up a fantastic prize to one lucky winner of this sketch (visit the Card Patterns blog to link up your card for a chance to win!)... How about a package of Basic Grey 12x12 Designer Cardstock in Optimistic AND a Basic Grey Pretty Bird Stamp Set? Fun stuff! Enjoy, friends, and have a happy weekend!
