Card Patterns #138

Good Morning dear friends!! I hope you are enjoying your Saturday!  It is a little cloudy and misty here today which makes it a perfect day for baking cookies, reading a good book,  and playing in my studio.  I hope I have time to do a little of each today, but goodness knows once I start working on my cards, the time just flies right on by!

If you are looking for a good sketch to get your creative juices flowing, here's the sketch from Card Patterns this week:

our sponsor is the ever so generous Catherine Pooler:
Catherine Pooler has been a Stampin’ Up demonstrator for almost 8 years. Her favorite Stampin’ Up products are the punches and anything in coordinating colors such as the ink, cardstock and patterned paper! That safely covers most things in the SU catalog! ;)  One random participant this week will win Stampin' Up's Birthday Party Rub-ons!

I totally have Christmas on my brain today, and when I saw the beautiful red polka dot papers in the  Play Date Designer Series kit from Catherine Pooler, I knew I was going to have to make a poinsettia for today's card! I cut the flowers with my new PTI Christmas Poinsettia die.  To finish off my card, I embellished it with some beautiful Stampin Up! Old Olive ribbon, also from Catherine Pooler.

Supplies used:
Play Date Designer Series Kit
Stampin Up! Whisper White Paper
Stampin Up!  Old Olive Satin Ribbon
Prima Lace
Papertrey Ink Cream and Simply Chartreuse felt
Dies:  PTI Wonderful Words Holiday Die Collection, Edgers #3 and Christmas Poinsettia
Recollections Floral
Vintage Hymnal Paper

Thanks for stopping by,
