Playing With Patterns


Today I found myself taking a little time and playing with different patterns.  For this card I put 2 of the stamps from "Distressed Stripes" and one of the stamps from "Polka Dot Basics" on a block and then stamped the bottom half of the card in Vintage Cream ink.  Then, I took the outline circles and went back in and stamped in Hawaiian Shores ink.  It was fun to mix the patterns.


I used a piece of PTI's new patterned paper "Green Boutique" under the ribbon.  I stamped part of the "Fillable Frames 2" frame at the top first in Vintage Cream and then in Aqua Mist on top of that and I kind of like how that looks.  The pearls are from Basic Grey and the sentiment is from the PTI "Butterfly Dreams" set. 

Isn't that paper just gorgeous?  I really, really like it!

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope that you have a wonderful day!
