CardPatterns Sketch #3: Luck o' the Irish!
Hi everyone! Here's yet another St. Patty's Day card, which uses CardPatterns Sketch #3. I'm really loving their sketches, it makes laying the card out so much easier :)
I used lots of supplies on this card, so I'll start off with the paper. The orange background is K&Co (I bought one of those boxes at Michael's- LOVE IT!), the yellow is Me & My Big Ideas, and the one with the pots of gold and plaid are DCWV. The other two green papers I got in a swap, so I don't know who made those.
The flowers are Petaloo, the brad is Queen & Co. and the "good luck" sentiment is a white Basic Grey rub-on. The "luck o' the Irish!" sentiment is a clear sticker by Reminisce. The stitching, or rather "stitching" is a rub-on by Creative Imaginations- how sneaky am I!?! :D I don't know how to sew, so this is a super easy and fool-proof way for me to add stitching to my cards- yay! I have a Sew Craft Mini but I really don't know how to use it, so it's just sitting on my desk collecting dust.
Alright, well I hope everyone is having a swell weekend! I went shopping today because my local scrapbook store is closing and everything in the store is 50% off. I feel awful for the owner, and I'm really going to miss going there every now and then to get the things I can't find in Michael's, AC Moore or Joann's. It seems like the chain stores are starting to carry more up-to-date merchandise though, and lord knows I have plenty of stash to hold me over! :D Thanks for popping in, hope you like my take on the sketch!
