Card Patterns Sketch 80

Hi everyone! Happy Labor Day! Yay another day to relax and craft! :) We didn't really make plans for anything today so maybe I can catch up on all of the challenges online! I made a card today using Card Patterns Sketch 80. I was in the mood to use my Tea for Two stamp set again this morning. Here's the sketch:

I've also been wanting to use this polka dotted patterned paper for awhile now. I think it's really cute! Who doesn't love polka dots? I also stamped a branch/leaves image behind the tea pot so that it wouldn't look so plain. I used a lighter shade of blue so that it wouldn't take away from the main image. And I added that little circle tag up top because it looked so empty up there. The buttons are from Walmart and I decided to use different colors just so the card won't look that monochromatic. 

Cardstock - kraft, vintage cream, spring rain (PTI)
Patterned Paper - sky polka dots (Chatter box), lush (My Mind's Eye)
Stamps - Tea for Two (PTI), leaves/branches (Inkadinkado)
Others - buttons (Walmart), edge punch (EK Success)

I'll probably have more posts later on in the day. Enjoy your Labor Day weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. You were right about the buttons, they add a nice touch of color. Love the papers you chose and the way you stamped the branches behind the teapot. Seriously, I will not be able to resist this stamp set much longer!

  2. What a sweet image. Love that teapot. Thanks for playing along with us at Card Patterns.
