bloom and grow...

Yahoo for Saturday!

Saturday's mean sleeping in and crafting and also the new Card Patterns sketch!!!


First off though, I wanted to share our returning Sponsor for this week:



She has moved over to an Ebay shop HERE.    


Craftbrulee is giving away a $10 voucher prize to one random participant of our sketch!

I love the things that she sent us and had fun putting together another card with her fabbie blooms....here is this week's Card Patterns Sketch 102:


This is my take on the sketch...Isn't that CraftBrulee bloom thee best?  All the wonderful layers and the gorgeous pearl center!



I wanted to let the bloom shine so I worked with the very fun Cosmo Pixie'licious papers....I love the lilac and green combo...check out my felt leaves...the wool felt is from Impress that I cut and stitched with vintage blue thread...it's the same color thread that I've used throughout my card...every panel has stitching!  The banner is Lawn Fawn and the sentiment, bloom and grow, is SRM.

Did you see this?


I'm telling ya....you won't want to miss this week long event!

Thanks so much for stoppin' by and I look forward to seeing how the Card Patterns sketch inspires YOU!
