Chickaniddy Crafts May Card Sketch

I have card to share today that I made using this month's Chickaniddy Crafts sketch
& the wonderful  Twirly Girly & Date Night collections. 

Here's this month's sketch:

I decided to tweak the sketch by changing up the bottom edge of the banner and
by having the banner as a layer over all of the patterned paper strips.

Here's my card:

Supplies: Twirly Girly Paper (TG140S05; TG140S06, TG140S08, TG140S11, TG140S12) ; Twirly Girly Alpha Stickers (TG14EB01) Twirly Girly Mini Sticker Tags (TG14EB04); Date Night Clear Stamps (DN14ST01)

I cut some strips of patterned paper for my background and adhered them to a 
4.25x5.5 panel of solid pink patterned paper. 
Then, I stitched these in place with some zigzag stitching.
I diecut my cardstock panel and added some letter stickers and a trimmed sentiment sticker.
I stamped the flowers & leaves from the Date Night stamp set onto the same 
solid pink patterned paper and cut them out by hand.
I stamped the leaves in a lighter grey onto my cardstock diecut and then adhered 
the stamped flowers & leaves in place.

Tip: Create some dimension with your stamps by stamping 
some of them on the background and fussy cutting others.

Be sure to stop by the Chickaniddy Crafts blog
to see Savannah's & Kathy's takes on the sketch.

Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous card, Leigh. Your work is such an inspiration to me, and to many others as well. Love the soft look of these papers and inks. I've been eyeing the Chickaniddy papers and goodies....this card of yours may have just pushed me into the buying not eyeing category! Bev
