Card Patterns Sketch #18


DSCN7328This is my first card using a Card Patterns while not being on the Design Team.   I saw this sketch and immediately thought of my new stamp, Kind and Caring thoughts.  I then scrolled down and saw that almost everyone had stamped an image on the central panel like I wanted to - a row of different images making up the whole panel.  Also, most of the DT used flowers too.  The sketch just lent really well to a repetitively stamped flower.  I stamped off each image once before I stamped it on my Whisper White CS for the card.  I didn't want the colors as bold as they are without being stamped off.  It was a fun sketch and I suggest you check it out HERE, along with all of the gorgeous cards by the DT.  Did you know that they have a a member of the male variety on the DT?  I don't know of too many male stampers/scrappers out there, but it's pretty neat that the ones I have come across all see phenomenal and Peter is no exception.  Maybe I'm partial to his name...it's the same as my hubby's.... ;)  LOL
