2 Sketches 4 You - Kay's Bonus Sketch

While the girls were playing outside yesterday afternoon I created a card for my friend Vera who is celebrating her birthday today. I followed the 2 Sketches 4 You Bonus Sketch designed by my wonderful friend Kay. I am a huge fan of Kay's work. She has a fabulous style and has a great eye for detail and combining colors and patterns. If you're not familiar with her work yet you should really visit her blog. The scrumptious blue ribbon used on this card was bought at M&J Trimming in New York. On our first day in New York last October we met up with Kay and went ribbon shopping together. Using the ribbon reminds me of the fabulous time we had in New York. Eric and I would love to go back there....soon. Here's my take on Kay's bonus sketch.



Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream) ⎜ Patterned paper: October Afternoon Fly a Kite ⎜ Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Labels, Beautiful Blooms II, Asian Fusion) ⎜ Ink: Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate, Hawaiian Shores, Lemon Tart) ⎜ Ribbon: M&J Trimming ⎜ Twine: Papertrey Ink (Rustic Cream) ⎜ Buttons: Papertrey Ink (White & Cream Mix, Lemon Tart) ⎜ Tools: Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels One, EK Success Fancy Flight Border Punch, sewing machine ⎜ Other: foamtape

You still have time to leave a comment on the give away post. The deadline is Midnight on Friday April 16th.

I'll be back with another card tomorrow. Be sure to check in for something fun.

Have a fabulous day!
