Card Patterns Guest Designer: Sketch 118

Hi bloggies! Wow this whole week was crazy for me. I know it's been a bit quiet around here, but I wasn't feeling too well since Thursday. I'm exhausted coming home late from work for a few days now. I didn't get back home until 10:30 last night. It was crazy! 

I didn't participate in the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge this week as I just couldn't make a card to save my life! I'll make up for it next week I promise! 

Instead, I have a card for Card Patterns Sketch 118. I'm the Guest Designer for this week! Yay! How exciting is that?! 

It's a really good thing I was able to make my card last weekend or else I have no idea how I could have come up with this yesterday! Well, without further's Card Patterns Sketch 118.

And here's my card! Since the challenge I won was sponsored by The Craft's Meow, I thought it would be appropriate to use their stamps for my card this week. I used Celebrating You and Timeless Tags. As I said before, Celebrating You is my favorite set for the June release. It's just sooo beautiful! I also used Text It from Waltzingmouse Stamps. It's one of my favorite background stamps to use. 

I colored in the petals (are you surprised?! lol!) and I cut and made multiple pieces of some parts to layer onto each other. I just found it more beautiful that way. I also love the inked pink patterned paper from My Mind's Eye. Ok it doesn't look like it's a patterned paper, but it's actually aged on the sides and in some parts of the center panel. I also raised the center of the tag to balance things out. I hope you like my card for Card Patterns Sketch 118! I'll be out for most of the day today, but if I get home early maybe I can make a card for Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge! Have a wonderful weekend everyone! :)
