* Card Patterns 16 * Use It #11 *

It was time for another round of challenge blogs; this is the first time I am participating in a Use It challenge though. This wasn't very difficult for me. The challenge was:
make a square card;
use summer papers and embellishments
use flowers, ribbon, pin, twine
use your punches.
Well, I used the Bloom line of My Minds Eye; one of this summers favorites of me. I haven't used it very much (YET), so why not use it now :). Usage of ribbons, flowers, pins, twine and punches is so easy, since I use it on all my cards.
It was fun though to make this one. I used one of the stamps for sentiment that are gaining dust in one of my drawers since I have Melissa Frances stamps and rub ons. Supplies: white and pink bazzill basics, My Minds Eye Bloom & Grow papers; Other; Fiskars Lacy days of summer border punch, Crafts too corner punch, McGill Flower punch, Scalloped scissors, Studio G stamps, Prima Flrower, Pin, beads, pink & mint ribbon, white organza ribbon, button

And as promised my first card with the papers I bought yesterday. They are so lovely to work with. It gives a real summery feeling. I used a sketch from Card Patterns, already number 16. Again it was a great sketch to work with.
Supplies: white & pink bazzill basics; Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday papers; Other; green & pink ribbon, rose; white puffy paint, Crafts too corner punch; Fiskars border punch, Butterfly punch, pin, Melissa Frances stamps.
