Combined Sketch Card

Happy Friday! My husband had the day off today so we (I mean, he) got some flowers planted - some pretty zinnias and a new pot of geraniums. I took a break this evening to make a card for a few sketches. This card combines Kristina's Color Inspiration #49 and 2 Sketches 4 You #23. I really love the fabric that Kristina had for the color inspiration - in fact, I recently bought some. It's actually a navy background in real life, but I liked using the black in the challenge. I had a whale of a time trying to get this sketch together - mostly what to do about that strip along the side. I tried ribbon but settled on a scallop edge peeking out the side. I can't stop making these cute 4-1/4" square cards. I promise to try some regular A2 sizes soon! LOL Here's my card ...
I made all my own patterned paper for this one ... using PTI Polka Dot Basics and also Faux Ribbon. Fun! I love making my own patterned paper. Details on my supplies are below. I have to run out - we are off to celebrate a good friend's birthday!
