Did you put on your sunglasses?  This card is one of several I will be sending out to the new recruits—mine and my downline!  It was fun to not do Christmas colors, but it is a tad bit out of my comfort zone….the patterns are strong, but I was trying to stretch myself, use some products that would appeal to my new demonstrators, yet not use too many so they can easily recreate something similar!  I used Mary Jo’s Techno Stamper Sketch 150:


and I adjusted a couple little things…hope that’s okay!


The seam binding “bow” is tied to the scallop…a cute little way to add an embellishment. Here’s the inside:

  1. I just love this. I so love bright colors and the idea to tie the seam binding to the little scallop is brilliant. I would have thought it would break. So nice to have you play along with my sketch challenge this week! Thanks.

  2. What a great card, Leanne. I love your patterned papers. The black and white with hot pink looks awesome together. Have a blessed weekend.

  3. Love the color combination! What a fun card :)

  4. Oh LeAnne, I love this! So fun, fresh and modern! And tying the ribbon on the scallop trim is GENIUS!

  5. I love the colors on this one, and especially how you attached the bow to a scallop! Now that's using your crafty talent my friend!

  6. LeAnne,

    These are some of my fave color, white, black! I love the DP, the butterflies and the thoughtful arrangement of all the elements. Your create talent always shows and gives us great ideas.

    Thanks for sharing, Martha
