Card Patterns #65 Guest Designer

Hi everyone!  Did anyone see this post?  My card was selected as the weekly winner for the Card Patterns #63 sketch!  That means I get to be the Guest Sample maker this week!

Here is this week's sketch #65:

I have to admit, I was a bit nervous making this card.  I knew it would be featured on the Card Patterns blog with TONS of viewers and I wanted to make sure it was worthy!  So after a day of panicking and 3 failed cards, I went back to one of my current favorite cards and CASED it!  I used the same papers from Pink Paislee, 365 Degrees and stamp set, One Person from Verve.

The 4 corner elements to the sketch threw me a bit.  All I could see was BUTTONS and didn't want to go "cutsie" with my card.  So, I used some small brown pearls from Zva Creative's Round Pearl Wheel.  To make them more balanced, I used the same pearls on the smaller panel.  See my fancy combo stitching of zig-zag and straight?  I love how it turned out -never mind the THREE PANELS that turned out to be "practice" -LOL!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day!

OHHHHHHH!  Before I go, I wanted to mention that the winner of my little "goodies giveaway" never contacted me, so I have chosen another winner! helped me select:
