Aloha everyone and hope you're all having a fabulous Sunday! I woke up to finding some amazing inspiration through fellow bloggers that have been getting crafty with pattern paper. I love to use pattern paper to paper piece, but I usually steer away from layering because...quite frankly...I have no clue how to make it look nice.
The next Lawnscaping Challenge is to find something that inspires you. Well I was absolutely inspired by Teri Anderson's cards this morning that I knew I had to gather some pattern paper and start playing!
I was a bit nervous when it all came together. Did I use too much pattern paper? I was trying to remember all the different tidbits I've learned from various bloggers about using pattern paper from the same pad, using a mix of different scaled patterns and keeping a color scheme. Goodness...playing with pattern papers is a lot harder than I thought! Must practice some more!!!
I loved the idea of stamping on pattern paper and thought that came out pretty good. There's quite a bit of Lawn Fawn goodness in this card from the paper to the stamps. The stems of the flowers is from Let it Snow and the little flowers is from Sophie's Sentiments. I stamped out the jar from Summer Time Charm and masked out the lid. That large sentiment is from So Much to Say.
I loved how Teri did a solid black line above and below her pieces...seemed to make it all come together...I'm hoping my card did that and want to thank Teri for inspiring me to start using more pattern in my cards!
Since this is a birthday card I will also be entering it in CAS-ual Fridays: Birthday Bash
I think this card loosely follows the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge for this week...
Thanks for stopping by and any feedback is always appreciated!
