The Craft's Meow April Sketch Challenge

My share today is a card I made for The Crafts Meow April Sketch challenge posted below.  I just recently purchased some stamps from them, but haven't had a chance to use them yet.  I choose their "Just for You" set to work with for this challenge.

The base is a 3-1/2" x 8" teal colored card from my stash of Close to My Heart papers.  I layered two coordinating pattern paper from my stack Recollections - Bold Basic, cut at 3" x 7-1/2" for the bottom layer and 2-1/2" x 7" for the top layer.  I stamped my image 3 times and sentiment with Close to My Heart, Gypsy ink on to cream cardstock.  Punch the images out with a 1-1/2" circle punch and punch 3 teal circles with a 1-3/4" circle punch.

I also cut a 1-1/2" x 3-1/2" pattern paper and a 4" scallop border in cream cardstock cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge, page 48, <sclops-s> using the oblong feature, trimmed to 3-1/2".  Cut a 1/2" x  3-1/2" cream cardstock for the sentiment banner, punch the ends with a square punch to create the banner.  Layer all paper pieces as shown in the photo.  My finishing touches are tiny adhesive pearls to the scallop border, the banner and medium size to the centers of the images.  And last of all, a organza lavender ribbon bow at the top.

Thank you for stopping by today, enjoy my card, stop by The Crafts Meow to check out the sketch and play along.  Hope your day is filled with joy.
