TPV Card Sketch Challenge!

It's week 21 at The Paper Variety!! Thanks for joining us
for another great challenge.. we're so glad to have you back! :)

TPV challenges you this week to create a card using
this sketch, designed by yours truly! You can flip it, mirror it,
rotate it, and also use it to create a layout or otherpaper project.

This week we have a sponsor you all should know :) She is
our sweet Team B designer, Patti! Patti is offering this awesome
kit from Citrus Tree Studio full of beautiful Jillibean Soup
paper and embellishments, and much more!

Just in case the sketch and awesome prize aren't enough
inspiration for you, check out these beautiful DT examples!!

I made this card about "LOVE's theme". I used my copics with a
Stampavie' stamp. The quote is from Close to my Heart. Handmade flowers. -Marilyn

I'm having so much fun creating this card, love the sketch! -Suzy

Love this card sketch created by Abby. I created a "Love" card! This one is the one I gave to my mom on Valentine's day. Love the combination from the pink damask patterned paper from Glitz "Love Nest" collection combined with SU! River Rock cardstock and ribbon, rose shaped metal brads from Dear Lizzy and cardstock sticker from Tim Holtz. -Yara

AmyI'm not much of a card maker, but this was fun! -Amy

Lisai made my card with the basic design in mind, but added some touches to make it my own. i added some machine stitching, ink, and some homemade buttons with my epiphany crafts button maker! this was such a fun sketch!! -Lisa

***Designer April is ill this week.. so Team B's
Patti has kindly stepped in for her. Get well soon, April!! :) ***

PattiI chose to keep the "hello" sentiment from the sketch inspiration and used Jillibean patterned papers (included in this week's prize). I think this card is perfect for Spring. :) -Patti

 My nephew's 2nd birthday is in a few weeks and I thought
Echo Park's "Little Boy" was the perfect collection for this
fun sketch. -Abby
