Pattern Play, Day 1

Busy day at work today, and choir rehearsal tonight, but I was DETERMINED to make a card for Day 1 of the newest Online Card Class, Pattern Play.

I used 3 patterned papers from Basic Grey's Picadilly 6X6 pad, but I stamped and clear embossed a HA background stamp onto the pale aqua paper.   There wasn't enough of an edge between the middle and bottom papers, so I drew in a line of faux stitching with a white gel pen.  I added some glimmer to the buterfly with my brand new Gelly Roll Stardust pen from Sakura.
I'll be submitting this card to 4 challenges - Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger "Elegant Emerald"A Blog Named Hero's "Free Style"Addicted to CAS "Wings", and Retro Sketches #55.



 Have a great day!!

  6. Your card just jumped out at me! I love the stiching idea (as I'd never actually sew! /shudder) And I also love the clear embossed pattern, great texture effect!
