Card Patterns Sketch #161

Can you stand a bit more Dotty for You today? This time I used the new sketch from one of my favorite sketch blogs, Card Patterns. It is a cute square card, a bit out of the box for me, a girl who tends to lean hard on the standard size card! I needed to squeeze in one more post as I specifically used a fun Stick Pin for a flag on this card for the Tuesday Throwdown stick pin challenge...and I'm getting tired of finishing cards for challenges and then not posting them until just a smidgen too late! Might be time to actually start using that Blog planner i found on Pinterest...

I cut three layers of a simple daisy shape from my Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and gently rolled each petal between my fingers before layering all three together with 3-D Foam tape.

The yellow scallop is cut from the same swirly Dotty for You paper. Each pattern in the pack is a brightly colored print on one side and a coordinating monochromatic polka dot on the back - sweet!

I cut the starburst image from the sheet of labels that comes in the Dotty paper packet, and the heart was handcut from Ocean CS and sanded pretty heavily. The Star was cut from the Dotty Paper labels, as was the SMILES sentiment I wrapped as a flag around one of our Pretty Pins stick pins. (I actually keep one of our adorable flower pins tucked in a rubber band around my Liquid Glass bottle - you know, to poke it when it won't go. Who can tell me where to get a Pretty Pin poker for a stubborn 4 year old?)

A bit of Lagoon Mini Medley stitched ribbon and I was loving my 3-D flower card! OK - I swear no more posts until after the blog hop tomorrow!
