Card Patterns and more JustRite Stamping

Yes, you already know I love sketches challenges, so I tackled the Card Patterns sketch #25 for this week.
And, I can't hide it, more brand new supplies. Is that lace paper just plain yummy!? I love adding flowers of any kind, but I thought it would be fun to make my own flower by tearing some Core'dinations cardstock. It is so fun to tear this paper to expose the core. I also tore the leaves but I also put a score line down each one with the Scor-Pal tool.
I used a piece from The Chocolate Box collection for my card base. I sanded all of the outside edges of the card to expose the blue that goes so well with my card elements. I just love that my card is brown but has that great blue edge cut the other really cool thing is that when the card is opened, the inside of the card is also that wonderful blue color.
Since we are playing with JustRite stamps at CPS this week, I just had to put together another card with some of the stamps that I have. JustRite offers stamps that are individual letters and you can place them on a block that holds the letters, allowing you to create you own greeting. They also offer a few different fonts. I just had to show some of those letters off by creating this greeting for my card.
The flower is cut from a piece of Daisy Bucket Designs patterned paper. I added it to my card front with foam tape for added dimension. It is a little bit hard to get the full effect with my photo, but I coated each of the petals to my flower with Aleene's Paper Glaze. The glaze gives the petals an epoxy look.
