Make a Wish

Last week Nadine posted a new challenge on the Papertrey Pals blog. She challenged us to use patterned paper. I love to use patterned paper and Nadine already mentioned that I don't seem to have any problems using patterned paper. She's right. I don't find it difficult at all. If you have a hard time combining different papers I recommend you use various sheets from one collection. Usually a collection has about 6 (or more) different sheets of patterned paper, and the designs and colors go really well together. If you would like to challenge yourself a bit more you can either mix various collections from one manufacturer or you can mix patterned papers from various manufacturers.

For this card I combined papers from Fly a Kite and The Thrift Shop from October Afternoon together. I made this card for the youngest daughter of friends who's celebrating her 5th birthday today.



Supplies: Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream) | Patterned paper: October Afternoon (Fly a Kite, The Thrift Shop)) | Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Cupcake Collection, Vintage Labels) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate, Aqua Mist, Hibiscus Burst) | Ribbon: Papertrey Ink (Aqua Mist Saddle Stitch) | Tools: Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels One, EK Success Bracket border punch, sewing machine | Glitter: Prisma | Other: foamtape

We've been finally having beautiful spring weather. It was sunny and warm today, and tomorrow looks good too.

Thank you for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
