Unusual card sketch

Here's my entry for this week's sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  This was an unusual sketch having angled pieces hanging off the edge of the card.  The card base had to be cut smaller so that it would still fit into an envelope.  

Project Notes:

  • All the designer paper is from one collection which included journaling cards and buttons.  To make cutting a little easier, I used the reverse side of the printed papers for the matting on each of the angled pieces.
  • The quote is stamped on a journaling card.
  • The ribbon flower is made by sewing a thread through one edge of the sheer ribbon and pulling it all together.  Then I sewed the button on through the cardstock.  No glue!

This will be a great card for either of two special birthdays coming up in September.  I love this quote and I hope the recipient celebrates a bunch!

Thanks for stopping by!
