I am so honored to be guest designer for Card Pattern Challenges sketch 121. I discovered the amazing world of paper crafts a few months ago when I decided to help my preschooler make his valentines cards instead of buying. I love the process of card making that helps bring out my inner creative spirit. I love all aspects of paper crafts – color, pattern, embellishments, and techniques. I am eclectic in my approach, and my styles vary from clean and simple to shabby chic. Now, I have become a voracious reader of the online world of card making blogs. I feel so privileged to be part of this inspiring community!
