Happy Thursday! Wow can you believe the week is almost gone? I still have cards that I hope to get to for challenges this week.  I think it would be so much fun to just have all the time I wanted to play with paper!

Today’s card is one I did for the Card Patterns Sketch 147


For this card, I chose paper from DCWV’s Once Upon a Time mat stack.  I just love the vibrant colors in this paper.


The wisteria pattern is stamped using Rubber Stamp Tapestry’s Wisteria Frame Set .  The sentiment Love Blooms also comes from Rubber Stamp Tapestry ("Love Blooms" 3 Inch Block Stamp ).


I added paper pricking (or piercing) in the top corners using Erica Fortgens piercing plate.


Lace ribbon, hearts, and Liquid Pearls complete the design. 

….And this is the sketch that I was working from.

Complete instructions are listed below, so if you want all the details, please scroll down.
