CPS Sketch #129

7:15 PM

Happy Monday, hope you had a wonderful and sunny weekend! It's really hot over hear and I think it's okay to have a teeny tiny bit of ice cream during the typing process :-)

I have another birthday card to share today. This time, I was inspired by another great CPS sketch - you can see the sketch over at their blog.

The patterned paper was given to me by one of my office mates. She wanted me to make a birthday card with it, but all I could think of was "baby card and colors" which is actually the intended theme of that paper pad... Well, I put the paper aside and started with stamping the sentiment on twill tape. Then, I decided not to put an additional stripe of ribbon over the lenght of the card but to stamp a flourish onto the patterned paper. A little machine sewing with a matching thread color was the perfect finish. Well, I think: Mission accomplished - the flower and flourish give the baby themed patterned paper a bit of a different look. Me likey :-)

Stamps: PTI Fancy Flourishes, PTI Mod Squad
Ink: PTI Plum Pudding, Colorbox Chalk Ink alabaster,
Paper: PTI kraft and Bitty Baby Blessings patterned paper
Other: Sewing machine / thread, Imaginesc flower, twill tape, pinking sheers, bling brad
