Card Patterns Sketch 86

I really needed to make a birthday card for someone, and I was not sure where to begin.  I decided to check out the latest Card Patterns sketch and it's been a while since I've played along over there.

I don't spend as much time blog hopping and checking out other challenges sites as much as I'd like to, so I decided it was time to visit my other favorite challenge blog.  So here's my card for CP Sketch 86:

Here's a close-up shot:

The Details:
Cardstock Bazzill Basics
Patterned Paper My Mind's Eye
Tag (cut down to a rectangle) Martha Stewart
Scalloped Trim Making Memories
Stamp and Ribbon Stampin' Up
Pearls Kaiser Scrapbook
Ink Stampin' Up and Tsukineko

Thanks for looking and have a great week!

Stampin' Up Week at 365 Cards

This week we are being sponsored by Catherine Pooler, frequent 365 Cards participant and Stampin' up demonstrator.

Here's the sketch to start off the week:

And my card:

I'm such a rebel with my own sketch.  Based on the sketch, I should have something in the bottom left corner, but I just could not come up with something that wouldn't spoil the overall look of the card.

My absolute favorite product from Stampin' Up is the ribbon.  It's gorgeous and each spool comes loaded with ribbon.  The ribbon and the Happy Birthday stamp are both Stampin Up - and this is just a teensy bit of what I have in my stash :)

This week there has been a big change at 365 Cards.  We now have a set of seven spotlight designers that we'll reveal every Monday from the previous week's challenges.  It's been a change that was long overdue.

I hope you'll join us this week for some great challenges!

We have some incredible sponsors at 365 Cards, and this one is no exception. We got to play with some fabulous stamps this week, and here is my interpretation of this week's sketch:

I was feeling Halloween-y....hmmmmm, I wonder why?

Have a great week!
