Playing along with Muse card club challenge #91 today - Michele Ferguson has challenged us to make three cards in a matching set using one piece of patterned paper. I modified the challenge slightly - I've made a piece of patterned paper myself using a background stamp, embossing, and watercolour pencils. I've then cut it down to use on three cards.
Card # 1 - I used a horizontal panel across a portrait card, with a black sentiment stamped on vellum over the top. A red bow was the finishing touch.
