Jay Gee's Nook and Card Pattern challenge

Hi everyone! I'm so happy that I got to play along with the latest challenge on the Jay Gee's Nook site! There's tons of inspiration from their photo and I thought it'd be a fun way to incorporate a sketch from the Card Patterns site, too. For some reason, the picture from Jay Gee's isn't loading on my site. So PLEASE click on the link to their site to see the inspiration photo. I wanted to use some of the pink and yellow in the inspiration picture and also the buttons. Here's the sketch I based my card on:
Here's my card: I mounted the card on a dark blue cardstock that was inked with chipped sapphire distress ink. I arranged the buttons and added the pearl centers and then adhered those to the card. I tied the ribbon and punched out a tag for the sentiment and the card was done! I usually don't leave a lot of "white" space on a card so this one really challenged. I had to literally fight with myself to NOT add more stuff to the card and to just leave it a CAS card. But it was a fun card to do since it was so different for me. Hope you can play along, too! Happy Sunday! Pat


  1. Great card Pat, those buttons are simply perfect!

  2. So sweet! Just love all those buttons with the pearls on top, great idea. So glad you could play along with us on Card Patterns this week!
