Sweet Sketch Wednesday #50

Good Morning!  Happy Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  Arlana has another fabulous sketch for us to play with and Sally Ann from Digi Stamp Boutique is back to sponsor us!  Wednesday can't get much better than this.

See, I told you it was a fabulous sketch!  And here's what I did with it....

I am so pleased with how this card turned out.  Yes, I used the same paper earlier this week - I just love it.  And I am trying to be really good and not buy new.  I'm using what I have.  I'm using what I have.  I'm using what I have.  (Yes, I'm convincing myself this is a good thing.)

I do love my new Cricut Expression.  I still haven't played with it nearly as much as I want to, but here and there is good, too.  I did used an SVG file that I got from SVG Cuts that I think is so pretty!  When I put the card together though, the top and bottom looked so empty, so I went in search of paper piercing patterns and I found this one!  I LOVE IT!!

Here's a detail photo of the card so that you can see the wonderful design to the SVG frame I used.  You can also see the paper piercing I did.

Card Stock:  Chocolate Chip, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
Paper:  Heidi Grace
Copics:  RV00, RV10, E57, YG63, YG67
Paper Piercing Pattern by Madjara
Tools:  SVG, SCAL/Cricut, paper piercer
Embellishments:  Close to Cocoa grosgrain, button

I hope you like my card.  I am so glad that you stopped by!  Now be sure to head on over to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog to play along.

Melissa,I just love your paper piercing pattern - how neat! Your papers are gorgeous - I'd use it all the time too and like you said, you're trying not to buy new - hey, it's gorgeous paper! :-) Your card is pretty - loving that pink and brown combo and the strip design - is that from your SVG cut? Cool! Also that background your image is on - that's cool too! Beautiful card! ;)
