Card Patterns and Kraft Journal

Good Morning,
Hope you week is going well. Mine is going fantastic actually. During my Spring Break, I submitted some work to a fabulous brick and mortar store near the Dallas/Ft. Worth area (The Crafty Scrapper) and while I wasn't chosen to be a regular designer, I was asked to be a guest designer! I am absolutely thrilled!

And to top it off, this is my last day to teach this week! I am heading out tomorrow morning for a sewing retreat with my mom, my twin sister Elizabeth and my younger sister Rebecca! I am so excited! We are heading towards Corpus Christi for some quality time together and a little sewing. You probably don't know this but before I was scrapbooking, I sewed... not a lot but I knew sewing basics and this weekend, I am going to work on a lap quilt! I can't wait!

On to my card, I am entering this card over at both Card Patterns and the Kraft Journal! I am using the sketch from Card Patterns and the theme for the Kraft Journal is "Oh baby, it's spring"! So, with that I have some fun spring paper and also a "baby" theme...

 I just couldn't find any ribbon that I particularly liked and so I went with some white twine...

Materials Used:
Patterned Paper: Fancy Pants
Kraft Cardstock
Teal cardstock: Bazzill
Twine: American Crafts
Sentiment: American Crafts
Button: Personal Stash
P.S. I am also entering this at The Paper Variety's Tic Tac Toe challenge!
