Card Patterns Sketch 53: Eggtastic

Hi All,

Card Patterns is having their one-year anniversary, and has decided to celebrate it with another sketch and a little healthy competition!  I have decided to showcase an image from InStyle Stamps that will be released this Friday, March 5!

Here is the sketch:


Now, this sketch seemed like a pretty difficult one for me, for some reason, but I am up to the challenge!  And I wanted to use this great digi image!

I decided to stick with a couple of simple colours for my card.  My card base is Bermuda Bay, followed by Whisper White, then Basic Black.  The top layer is Apricot Appeal, which was embossed with my Paisley Cuttlebug embossing folder.  The 4 strips are Basic Black CS and Apricot Appeal prints DSP from SU, and I tied some Apricot grosgrain ribbon aroung that whole base layer, with a little knot of Linen Thread on top of that.

My image is called Eggtastic, and will be released at InStyle Stamps this Friday.  I printed it onto PTI white CS, coloured it with Copics, and cut it out with Label 3 Nesties.  I sponged some Bermuda Bay ink around the edges, and matted it with Basic Black CS.  The flowers are from Close To My Heart, and have SU brads in the middle.

Well, that's it for today...try your luck at the anniversary sketch, and remember to hop on over to InStyle Stamps this Friday to see what great new stuff is being released!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
