Colorful Congrats Card

Today's card is one I made for the Sassy Lil' Sketches  card challenge. I just loved the sketch and wanted to give it a go. This entire card was created because I wanted to use this stunning piece of turquoise card stock! I guess inspiration can come from anywhere. I used brown to tone down the bright colors a bit.
Here is the sketch I used:

Kind Thoughts Friendship Card

Just a quick share today for a card I created specifically for the My Mind's Eye Blog card sketch monthly challenge.I've recently purchased several of their 6x6 paper pads. The smaller papers are great for card making:the patterns are smaller and don't overwhelm a small card like the 12x12 patterns may do. I am absolutely  in love with the Lost And Found collection!



I switched it up a bit but here is the sketch:

All patterned papers,buttons and bling brads are from the Blush collection.
Card Stock from The Paper Company
Rosette trim from Taylored Expressions
Lace Trim from Hobby Lobby
Stamp from Fiskars



Thanks for stopping by and have a great Saturday!

I combined patterned papers with white card stock, a layered Spellbinders label with a computer generated sentiment,silk ribbon and flower.
I used the sketch this week from Die Cuttin' Divas:
I also wanted to share something that I add to the back of every card I give away: A cute stamp from Inkadinkado:
What better way to tell someone that you care enough to make them a handmade card?
