Card Patterns Sketch #26 Card patterns super six winner!


Hello fellow bloggers!! Hope you are having a fantabulous week end!!! I had the opportunity to go to my BBGF Marge's house yesterday with my other friend Ilean & play with stamps all day!!! It was so fun & as always learned so much from these 2 ultra talented ladies!(I'll share some of that stuff later)I also came across a new challenge blog yesterday called card patterns That has Saturday sketches!!!! This is great thing..... for those of us that work during the week! The sketch is fantastic & really caught my eye! I used it nearly exactly as is & love the result!! Those of you that know me...;) know how much I complain about my inability to match patterned paper!! The PTI site has some fabulous ideas for doing just that!! One of the designers, Becky Oehlers made this amazing card
I loved her use of papers soooo much that I chose her same combo on my card today:


All products are PTI, except the buttons are SU...I really like how this card turned out. Personally I never in a hundred years would have thought to put these papers together!!! Guess that is why she is a designer and I am not!! LOL!!!

Have a great rest of the weekend!!!!

Gwen
