2 Sketches 4 You - Laura's Sketch 55

Happy Monday, my friends!! Thanks for joining me for a card for 2 Sketches 4 You. Here is Laura's Sketch 55:

Here is my card:

See the beautiful background? That's stamped using the Very Square set from Mint Motif. Mint Motif is also the sponsor for this week.

I trimmed cardstock to little squares then stamped the background using PTI's dark chocolate ink. I then tiled them on the mat. After stamping the other pattern, also from the Very Square set, with tumbled glass I punched them out using a Stampin' Up punch. I then added the buttons and sentiment before pop dotting them over the background panel. The sentiment is from the Very Square Sentiments set also by Mint Motif. I love the beautiful patterns that came in the Very Square set!

That's all I have for today. Hope you will have a chance to play along with us this week at 2 Sketches 4 You.


Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!


supplies:
cardstock, ribbon, buttons: Papertrey Ink
