Card Patterns - Sketch 127

Hi all,
Happy Sunday! Another hot and humid day in Chicagoland. Although the weather forecast for this coming week sounds gorgeous - low 80's and no humidity! And then the following week I am on vacation - yippee! No plans just yet other than getting caught up with chores around the house that I have been putting off all summer long. My back is getting stronger and stronger everyday so now I have no excuse!

My nephew (and godson) Aiden turned 6 this past Friday. I had attended his birthday party and took him home with me for the weekend. Saturday Aiden, my daughter Dana and myself volunteered at FTSC (Feed the Starving Children) measuring food, bagging, sealing, and labeling them. What an awsome organization they have. Our whole group packed 37 boxes which holds 36 bags each and will be shipped off to parts of Africa.

I'm entering a card into another Card Pattern challenge that looks like this -

Here is what I came up with:

I made the doily from a Cricut cartridge; punched the bird and branch from a Stampin Up punch and scraps of paper. Pattern paper is Melissa Frances, tag and sentiment from PTI, scrunch seam binding from Memrie Mare and flower by Recollections at Michaels Craft store.

I am off to post my card. Have a great Sunday!


  1. What a gorgeous card. I love that bird punch, I need to use it more often. I really like the blue and lavender combo.

  2. A very pretty card, I love the bird punch. The rose looks FAB. Love the added touch of the PTI tiny Tags.
