Card Patterns Sketch #14 meets Damask Designs


So...I love the Damask Designs stamp set.  I decided that one of the smaller damask images would fit perfection on a 1-1/4" punched square, and I was right!!  I stamped 5 of them on Cameo Coral, stamped the "Celebrate" on the 6th one and added some paper piercing.  Next I popped them up on Stampin' Dimensionals, added the scalloped Kiwi Kiss layer, added some PTI True Black Saddle Stitch Ribbon, a vintage white button (also PTI) tied on with some shredded thread, and there you have my card!  Can you tell I'm obsessed with bows and buttons right now?  I think that this is yet another sketch where we will be delighted to see all of the different ways that stampers out there can get creative and think outside the box with the different elements on the card.  I can't wait to see what everyone creates!!

Head on over to the Card Patterns blog to check out Sketch #14 HERE.  Our sponsor this week is Mackenzie Mae Designs, and Pam is donating so many goodies to one lucky winner that it took 2 photographs to show it all!!!  Not only will one random person be selected to win the goodies, but as always the CP DT will pick their top 5 submissions and one of them will be selected to earn a spot as a Guest DT member over at CP.

If that's not enough and you need more sketch, don't forget to take some time to create something for the DT Call over at CP using the sketch (and guidelines) that you can find HERE.  CP is a wonderful opportunity - you really should try!!

All supplies are SU! unless otherwise noted.
