This week is card sketch week over at Sketch Support. Well, you know me I love a good card sketch! This one took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to do and then one day it all just fell into place. Love it when that happens! To see the sketch, click here to be taken to the Sketch Support site. While there, you can see all the fabulous work the Creative Team is doing with the sketch.

Here is my card...

As I dug in my stash I found these banner stickers from the Soiree collection by Pink Paislee. Perfect! So I just layered and then cut off the edge. When I got ready to do the center rectangle spot for the sentiment, I didn't like how the stark white cardstock looked against all the colors and patterns. So I picked the calmest pattern from the collection and matted it. I think it works.

I grabbed my cuttlebug and scalloped circle dies to create the layered flower.

Such a fun sketch! I'm thinking about another card (a Christmas one) that I want to make using it now!

Speaking of which... I'm a little behind on mine! Got a craft show this coming Saturday and I didn't realize how stark my collection was. Woopsy! How are you doing on your Christmas cards???

Oh boy. I haven't even started my Christmas cards. I have some I've made for a few challenges, and some I made last year. But none that I've made with the purpose of sending out this year. Oy. Must get busy. This card of yours is great! I love this technique. It could be used for so many different cards.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. It was so nice to *see* you! :)
