Caardvarks Sketchfest #7 - Final sketch!

Today is the final day of Caardvarks` sketchfest already!! This is my card for the last sketch:


I loved Lucy`s idea of using a text to create individual patterned paper. Here I used "Imagine" by John Lennon. The dotted paper is BoBunny, the other papers, the button and the sentiment are Papertrey Ink. The butterflies are from the Hero Arts digi kit "flutterbies". The pearls are Prima.

I really enjoyed the sketchfest and hope it will be repeated!! Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!! Be sure to stop by on Monday, there will be a chance to win fabulous prizes because of the "World Card Making Day"!!!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Deine Karte ist toll geworden, Vanessa. Den Bordürenstanzer finde ich toll und die Schmetterlinge auf dem Schrifthintergrund ohnehin. :)
