{September 09 Card Challenge Contest}...a prize is up for grabs!!!

If you know me at all, you know that I LOVE working with, I chose a PageMaps CardMap sketch from June 2009 for your inspiration:

I love this one because I could incorporate several patterned papers and the design is clean & simple!I decided to create a "Thank You" card, as one can never have enough of them on hand! Here's what I came up with:

I used Jillibean Soup pp's and a journaling sprout from the August Kit here at Scrapbook Circle. As you can see, I followed the sketch VERY closely! For the contest, you can change it up however you see fit; rotate, substitute an embellishment or element, etc. The sketch is only meant to INSPIRE :o)

Here are a few closeups:

In order to create the upper left circular element of the card, I chose to cut out a circle from the Jillibean Soup patterned paper. I thought it would be fun to use as the base of my flower embellishment.

Here is the upper left corner of the card with the flower & brad layered over the Jillibean Soup circle...

The Jillibean Soup journaling sprout came with printing on the other side, but I chose to use the blank side for my "Thank You" sentiment, stamped in red.I used an eyelet & some embroidery thread to attach the sentiment to the card & it was done! Super simple & easy...but I really like the finished project!

Supplies: June 09 CardMap White card base-unknown Jillibean Soup pp-hot water (both sides), mixed veggies (both sides) - AUG KIT, Jillibean Soup-journaling number sprout - AUG KIT, Stampin' Up-eyelet-Night of Navy, Spare Parts by The Paper Studio-silk flower & brad, Embroidery Thread, Machine zig zag stitching, Stampin' Up ink-Real Red
