I've finally found some creative juices and I've got them flowing for the new challenge over at Lily Pad Cards. The challenge I'm entering is the Simon Says Stamp Presents a Patterned Paper Challenge. I've made two cards for this challenge and here is my first card:
I really wanted to push myself and use some great patterned papers. I used SEI's Couture collection and made a pie SVG on Make-the-Cut. I mixed and matched Couture's paper to create a wonderful mixed patterned circle.
I then did some stamping with Papertrey's Iconic Images and used Hero Arts Everyday Sayings for the sentiment. I didn't quite have the right color purple ink so I used Memento Lilac Posies and then put Grape Jelly right over top before I stamped.
I'm really glad with the way it turned out and I wish you could see this card in person because the Couture papers are so shimmery and beautiful in the light. Enjoy!
