The Most Wonderful Time ~ Card Patterns Guest Designer

Good morning friends!! Today I have the honour of being a Guest Designer for the Card Patterns Sketch #88.  Oh, I love that number...my son was born in 1988!! LOL  I was so happy when I saw the sketch this week...endless possibilities :)  I chose a shabby, vintage-y style, using some favourite items, October Afternoon paper, poinsettia dies, buttons, seam binding ribbon, stitching, BLING, and a Verve stamp :)  After cutting all the paper, I distressed the edges and then tea dyed them :)  I hope you can join us this week...thanks to Michelle and all the talented ladies over on Card Patterns for letting me play along with them this week :)  Have a fabulous day and thanks so much for stopping by and spending a few moments with me :D

Maureen, this is gorgeous!! Love the soft, sweet colors, and the seam binding ribbon with a giant pearl in the middle. I'm thinking I may deem you the queen of mixing dps. :)
