A little coffee in the kitchen


This is my card using Card Patterns Sketch #4. I'll admit I had to think about this sketch for a bit before attempting it. I have some oval issues. I love ovals, but don't always use them so well. I cut my ovals using my Wishblade and luckily I already had this Aqua Mist/Basic Grey Oval combo cut or I would be out of luck. (My Wishblade needs a new blade and I can't cut anything with it right now.) I drew out a rough draft of the design while waiting on my daughter to get out of school this afternoon so putting it together didn't take long, it was just a matter of color scheme. I went with mainly PTI colors (Ocean Tides, white, aqua mist) and threw in some SU pumpkin pie to go with the coffee cup. Coffee cup is from one of my favorite sets called Warm Happiness from... PTI of course! The top portion of the card was stamped using PTI's Polka Dot Basics and the bottom portion is from PTI's Guidelines set. Hmm, do I love PTI or what? You can't tell in the picture, but the button is sewn on the ribbon.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
