Card Patterns #128

Happy Saturday dear friends!!! I'm having a great time with my kids in Washington today!! We toured the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and what an amazing experience that was. My son-in-law works as an engineer at the shipyard and today was family day and family days only come around every five years! We feel very fortunate to have been able to see where Matt works and tour the USS Nemitz and various other buildings in the shipyard. I wasn't able to take my camera into the shipyard, so there will be no pictures to post. Bummer, but what a great experience it was just the same!!

I am excited to share today's Card Patterns sketch with you and what a great sketch it is!
Here's the sketch:
and here's my take on the sketch:
I used my Little Red Scrapbook kit once again with this week's sketch!  I thought the colors of the papers made a very happy card and as you can see from the sketch, I took liberty and used the sunshine to fill in for the focal point in the sketch and added a ribbon at the top of the card.  I also machine stitched all the cardstock seams and I absolutely love the look!
Supplies used:
Little Red Scrapbook August Kit: Echo Park Country Drive Papers and stickers
Papertrey Ink Rustic Cream Cardstock and Happy Trails Stamps
Bazzill Just the Edge
Hand Dyed Seam Binding: MemrieMare

Thanks for stopping by!!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
