Oh WOW!! Top 30 finalist and "A Perfect Pair" Card

I am so excited that my card HERE was chosen as one of the top 30 finalists in the 2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown. There was a HUGE response to the challenge last week and there were so many talented people that entered, being chosen is quite an honor. I want to congratulate the top 30 finalists as well as all those that completed cards for the showdown to make it a great success for Laura and Kazan on the 1st Anniversary for their 2 Sketches 4 You blog. Congrats Ladies!! I would also like the acknowledge all of the judges because I know it wouldn't have been an easy task to undertake with all those amazing entries.

Here is my card for the next round:



Stampin' Up!® Products:
Cardstock: So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Summer Sun, Kiwi Kiss
Patterned Paper: Good Morning Sunshine
Other: So Saffron 5/8” grosgrain ribbon, 1” and ¾” circle punches, Stylized Silver Hodgepodge Hardware, Flower Fusion, too, Button Bouquet Designer Buttons, Linen Thread

Non-Stampin' Up!® Cricut Expressions and Home Accents cartridge to cut the pear and my Cuttlebug and embossing folder for the embossing at the bottom of the card. I also used my sewing machine and thread for the stitching as well as my computer and printer to print the sentiment “A Perfect Pair.”


Thanks for stopping by!!
