Card Patterns - Sketch 22

here's the sketch for this week's Card Patterns blog--#22!

it's my second time participating with Card Patterns, and i'm quite excited to submit more cards for the wonderful sketches. i also loved browsing through the DT's work--really fabulous stuff!

here's my card...

i thought it looked cute without a sentiment, but if i add one (which would be inside), it would say, "Hello Nutty" or "You're Nutty!" i had a lot of fun pulling out some paper that i've never used before, and then breaking out my new border punch that embosses a bit. since i used textured card stock and kraft, i thought i'd add some distressing to give the card a more "woodsy" feel. i love that swirl i cut using my Cricut--it was just the right size and everything. and who can resist that little chipboard chipmunk from Colorbok? the vintage button is from my stash, and the ribbon is American Crafts. and those FABBY fat jewels are from K&Co. so sweet!
hope you enjoy, and thanks for looking! this week is the last week before i start helping with VBA's at church, and things are bound to get a bit crazy then :)
p.s. COUNTDOWN TO ECUADOR = 35 DAYS!

hahaha! i like this "nutty" card. you're right about the papers - they are all interesting and the distressing adds a nice touch. and chipmunk and button are of course beyond cute.

in all, very well done.
