Card Patterns 18

We've finally had some sun and I got some pool time this weekend...yay! I'm glad I got a few cards done too. The first card is based on Card Patterns Sketch 18. The sketches and DT work is quite inspirational week after week. I loved this sketch because of the 3 spaces for different patterned papers. I love mixing papers and this sketch was perfect to help me do that. I haven't quite "mastered" the mixing/layering of pp so this sketch was great. One of my favorite card makers is Moralia(Carla). I love the way she combines papers. Actually, I believe she is on the DT at Card Patterns. Anyhoo, here is my card:

I used my Cricut Storybook Cartridge for a lot of this - Sentiment, squarish tag things (what do you call them?) PP - MME Bohemia Bliss collection, Sentiment pp - MM Passport Collection

I also made this simple Father's day card using a small kit I got from a friend. A few of us on exchange monthly card kits.

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm so glad you got to enjoy some pool time! But can you believe all the rain this week? My son has had 2 outdoor events cancelled so far!

These are beautiful cards, Michelle! I certainly think you have mastered the art of layering and I've always admired your ability to combine papers! These cards are fabulous!
