Card Pattern Challenge and Scrapfest!

 Have you played with sketches lately? Well, here is a fun one for you to play! Since SRM Stickers is the sponsor for the Card Pattern Challenge (#110) , I was eager to make a card for the Card Pattern blog as a SRM DT! The sketch was designed by the talented Nina Brackett.
Here's my take on the sketch.
Thank You
Stamps: Hero Arts Fancy Design Flourish, Sew Artsy
Materials: SRM Stickers (flower, sentiment, wavy lines), felt,  paper flower, button, gems, Martha Stewart Lace Punch
I just came back from Scrapfest  a few hours ago. Yup, lucky me!! Scrapfest (one of the biggest one in Canada, I believe) is only half an hour away from my house! I got to meet to Tammy who is a talented card-maker/English teacher and lives not that far from me. Isn't she gorgeous!?
Next was my former Etsy guest DT team mate from Etsy Inspired Challenge Angie Blom (who is a DT for Unity Stamp---HELLO!)!! What talent, huh? So glad that both Tammy and Angie spotted me first as I was so absorbed in my shopping!
Don't forget to comment in this post for my blog candy (details here and at the side bar)
YOU may be the lucky winner!

Love the photos! Isn't it great that through this hobby you meet the most talented and sweet people?! I wish I was with you to that Scrapfest! I am sure I could get me tons of goodies! LOL! The card you made is so beautiful, I like what you did on the background ...is that pink embossing powder?!!! So cute!

Isha said...

Gorgeous card Virginia. Lucky you to meet Stamping friends in person and to really go to the shop for shopping...Oh, I could just spend days in one shop, given the opportunity and an unlimited credit card...lol.

Tammy said...

Great take on the sketch Virginia!
It was SO nice to meet you in person yesterday--finally!! You're too kind {blush}--I look as sweaty and dishevelled as I felt in that hot arena yesterday--haha!
I tried to create with my new goodies last night, but I think I was overloaded with inspiration (and exhausted) that I couldn't finish anything. Hoping the mojo kicks into high gear today!
