Card Patterns #113 and Layers of Color

This week Layers of Color is sponsoring a wonderful challenge blog called Card Patterns.  I had never heard of the Card Patterns blog until I saw it on the Layers of Color blog.  What a pleasant surprise.  They have wonderful sketches and a really great design team.  Here is the sketch for this week.

It's such a great sketch that I just had to participate in this challenge.

This is the card I made, you can click on the card to see the details a little better.  My fun little branch embellishment was created with twigs from my Nandina plant.  I added texture to some tissue paper using an embossing folder, then cut it into strips...wide ones and narrow ones.  I used the narrow ones to create the bow on top and the tiny little "flowers" on the branches, then I added a little bit of Vintage Glass Glitter to the tips of the branches for a little sparkle.  The texture on the paper in the background was created with a metal stencil.
