Card Patterns Sketch Challenge 65

Hey, 2 posts in one day!  Which means I'm doing a lot of stamping...but no house cleaning  : /    Oh well, as usual, the cleaning will wait for me.  Yay  : (

Through another blog, I recently found the Card Patterns blog.   I realized that they host a weekly challenge here.  I'm really having fun with the challenges that I've begun to participate in recently.  And this one is no exception!  AND...again, I'm using browns as my primary colors.  Yes, I'm kinda' stuck on browns lately.  Stampin' Up! has such pretty DSP's to coordinate with their Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip card stocks.  By the way...Close to Cocoa is one of the colors that will be discontinued soon.  I'll be sorry to see it go, it's such a nice soft brown.
I find that I'm using pearl stickers a lot lately.  In addition to the ones placed in the corners of my card, I couldn't resist adding one to dot the "i" in the word "kind".  I've picked up quite a few of these packets of stickers lately when Michael's craft stores had them on sale.  The "pearls" add a nice finishing touch to a card.

This is my take on this weeks sketch at Card Patterns.


Card Recipe:
Card stock: Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla (SU!)
DSP: To the Nines Specialty Paper (SU!)
Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Whimsical Words (SU!)
Ribbon: Chocolate Chip grosgrain (SU!)
Pearl stickers: Recollections
Punch: Curvy Label (SU!)

Thank you for taking a look at my blog.  Feel free to leave a comment!
