Card Patterns - Sketch 153

Wow - can't believe I finally found time to make a card and enter a challenge! I've been super busy making birthday cards for family and friends! February alone has 5 birthdays and they all were within the last 2 weeks! I will show them later but first here is a picture of the sketch over at Card Patterns:

Looked pretty easy until I had to cut out 10 squares to fit along the width of the card. I am not good at measuring and fitting and piecing things together. But it's the attempt that counts, right?! Here is what I attempted to put together:

All ten of those tiny little images are from the Crafty Secrets Vintage images. Card stock and pattern paper are from Close To My Heart.

Ribbon, button and pearls are from my stash. Sentiment is also from Crafty Secrets, the tag and trim are die cuts from Papertrey Ink.

I'm off to post this card over at Card Patterns. I'll be back to show some of the birthday cards I made for the February birthdays!

Enjoy this beautiful Sunday!
