New Cards in Envy sketch -- come over and play

After the last challenge of over 71 entered with stripes/polka dots, it gave me an idea to do another Polka Dot card using BoBunny  Bold & Bright Double Dot Designs paper, EK Success small banner punch with black cardstock, Twine from The Twinery, Sentiment from Authentique.

Here is the sketch: 

Very basic, but remember this has to fit in an envelope and have no extra postage when mailing it.  So with all that in mind I came up with something very simple and a friend of mine said it is elegant.

I know I am going to send this to a very special friend who does a lot for me with all kind of surprises.

Come over to Cards in Envy and play with us.  I know you can do this sketch, just don't over think it and you should have it done quickly.

  5. Great take on the sketch Karen. I love how you used the pennants, which seem to be all the rage in the paper crafting world. I have yet to use them myself but that doesn't mean you haven't inspired me to do so :)

  6. I just love how you used the pennants for that corner element. Great card!

  7. Karen I love your dramatic color combo and your out of the box thinking of the banner for defining your corner. Such a wonderful interpretation of the sketch and a great card. The twine accentuates your other elements beautifully! xx

  8. Your friend will definitely love it! I like how you used the flags in the corner as your interpretation of that torn element :)

  9. You can't go wrong with pink, that's for sure! I love the bakers twine, the black and white are perfect accent colors for this card.
