InStyle Thankful Thursday POST!

I am so excited! Today it is my turn to host the InStyle Blog - with a Thankful Thursday Sketch Post - I hope you like it -

For my sketch I went with lots of circles - Feel free to make these flowers, buttons or whatever fits with in the circle ;0)

Now for my card -
I just LOVE "MELANIE" she looks so carefree and just like she is enjoying life!

And for some reason Melanie just seemed to be a pink and green girl today - Green card stock base, with a shiny gemstone pink cardstock. The two pattern papers are from GCD Cloisonne collection. Really gorgeous colors in this collection, and perfect for Melanie.

My large circle with the image is cut with my Nesties, and a scalloped green card stock mat. I doodled the edges of the circle and white gel pen dotted the scallops. For my three smaller circles I went with three large white prima flowers with button centers, tied with white twine. The band across the bottom of the sketch could be a ribbon, more pattern paper but for this one I don't know why but the Martha Stewart picket fence border punch seemed to work well... I sewed everything down with pink thread and my sewing machine.

Please take time to pop over to the InStyle Blog and see other DT cards using my sketch and do give it a try yourself!

HUGS - and hope you have a wonderful Thursday!
