Simon Says Stamp Presents a Patterned Paper Challenge Card 1

I'm back!!!

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 apologize about the lighting I took this picture at night, and here in ND it gets dark so early... I can't wait for summer! :)

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!
