Card Patterns #131

Happy Labor Day dear friends!!!  I hope you are enjoying the end of the summer holiday!!  I am taking it easy after being sick for two weeks and I tell you, what a blessing it is to get some extra sleep and enjoy some extra time with my family!!  I am feeling truly blessed indeed!

I am thrilled to share this week's Card Patterns Challenge with you today!!  It's a classic sketch with lots of flair!!  Here's the sketch:
This week's sponsor is:
and they have the most beautiful scrunched seam binding and absolutely fabulous baker's twine. I used their gorgeous cream seam binding on my card and I just love it!!!  A big Thank You to My Craft Spot!!!

Here's my take on the sketch:
I have a little secret for you, I used my Little Red Scrapbook September kit for this challenge, so you have a sneak preview of what's to come!!  I am totally loving this kit and the stamps are absolutely fabulous!!  The dogwood flowers are from the stamp set and I stamped them twice and colored them with my copic markers and fussy cut them out.  I glued a bit of Stampin Up Glass Glitter in the centers for a little sparkle and shine.
I stamped the background circle with the script stamp from the set using PTI's Aqua Mist ink and added some Copic colored flowers and aqua buttons for contrast.  I also added some vintage ephemera from the kit for fun.

I hope you join us in challenge this week and you know I'll be looking for your projects in the Card Patterns Link!!

Have a great week!!
