Clover Patch Ant


Hi everyone.  Gosh, time really has gotten away from me; sorry I haven't posted in almost a week!... Don't you just hate when life gets in the way?

Today's card uses a pre-colored image from Doodle Pantry's newly released Clover Patch Ants COlOR Plus set.  Isn't this image the cutest!  I thought it would be perfect with Sketch by Carly 49.  I did tweaked the sketch  -- substituted a circle instead of a square for the main panel. 

Also, this is the first time I tried Spirelli string art. -- so easy and fun to do. You can find a great tutorial for this technique on SCS -- just click HERE  to go directly to the Spirelli tutorial. 

This card was really a fun one to make.  The sketch is a dream to work with and using a pre-colored image really made quick work of getting my card made and posted.  As always, I'm so glad you stopped by to visit.  Enjoy your day!
