Card Patterns Sketch 61

I hope you are having a great weekend. It's been beautiful and sunny in Croatia and we're enjoying outside more.

Today's card is for Card Patterns' Sketch 61. The sponsor this week is Limelight Papercrafts. It's owned and operated by the husband-and-wife-team of Drew and Mandy. I am almost 100% an online shopper since there are no crafts stores here in Croatia. I've bought from so many companies, but there are only a few I always shop from regularly and Limelight Papercrafts is one of them. I'm not paid to say this, but I love Mandy and her company. She's always willing to accommodate my "demands" and so generous with her sales.

One of the best buys I've ever made was through her store when I was looking for burlap strings likes Papertrey sells. Did you know for the same exact 20 yards of string that PTI sells for $5, you can get at Limelight Papercrafts for 70 cents? I go through those like crazy, so I bought a bunch. Of course, it doesn't come with a spool like PTI does, but who needs that? Limelight offers them in many colors, too.

Here's the sketch:


And here's my card that has my first ribbon flower I've ever made. The sentiment is from my favorite sentiment set by GinaK, Inside and Out. The card base is Cranberry Tart.

And don't forget the challenge I have going on now. A $20 Stampin' Up! Gift Certificate is the prize!

  15. I visited Limelight crafts, but they said they only ship in the US. How do you get them to ship to you in Croatia? can you let us know in your next post?

  17. Gorgeous card! I love your blog and look forward to all your new posts in my mailbox all the time!! :)
    How did you get an order from limelight?? Their website says they only ship to the US. I live in Canada and we simply don't have the same products available here either (which is crazy since we're right above the US) or if we do the price is crazy!! I have looked at limelight numerous times but can't order their due to their shipping policy. :(

    P.S. I LOVE your stamp sets from Gina K. I have most of them and just adore them!!!!
