Some basic measurements for you, if you like: the patterned paper part is 4.25x4, leaving 1.5 inches for the rest of the card base to fill. I placed my ribbon on the patterned side, not in the middle. It doesn't really matter where you place that dividing strip though.Supplies: Stamps: Floral Frenzy Ink: Bahama Blue, Spring Rain, Paris Dusk Paper: Pacific Point, Good Morning Sunshine Accessories, etc.: Satin Ribbon, corner rounder

I kept my card themed in the spirit of Valentine's Day. I really liked the effect of the fancy label underneath the sentiment on Dawn's card. I used the Label One Nestabilities for that. If you cut the squares in half, you can match them back up to make a more rectangular shape. It worked out well for this, since I knew I'd be placing the sentiment piece over top. The seam is completely hidden. The rest of the card seems pretty self explanatory. I added in one extra layer. I just can't help myself, I love having that 1/16'' border between my main image panel and the card base!
Supplies: Stamps: Heart Prints (PTI) Ink: Raspberry Fizz, Dark Chocolate Paper: Raspberry Fizz, Dark Chocolate, White Accessories, etc.: pop dots, nesties labels 1, saddle stitched grosgrain

- Make a sample card for my Fall-To Sketch (On a side note, someone asked about what this means. A fall-to layout is something you use frequently, it's kind of like a back-up. When you don't want to do something complicated, you can fall to these simple sketches!
- Make a card for the amazing PTI Over the Rainbow colour challenge (how yummy is that colour combo!)
- Make a birthday card for a good friend of mine.
I quickly set out to combine these into one card and I was successful! So first up, here's the sketch. For my main panel I went with 3.25x4.5. Feel free to change that up! The sketch is more like 2.25x3.5.Here's my card. I see now I didn't quite adhere to the sketch. My panel is much bigger and I don't have all 3 sides of the bottom panel being the same width. Oops! That's the beauty of a sketch, it provides a guideline. For the flowers/branch, I started out with Out on a Limb. Next I inked up the dotty flowers in Pure Poppy. Then I grabbed a flower from Text Boxed, inked that up in Summer Sunrise and went over the dots so it would kind of appear that the dots were the flower centers. Finally I added in leaves, using the small leaf image.
