Wee Memories "Dust Off That Patterned Paper" (WMC31)

Oh boy, and do I have my fair share of patterned paper!  I have really been trying to dig into my stash and start cutting up those papers that were initially bought with a purpose in mind!  You know what I'm talking about, I am sure I am not the only guilty party here!

Wee Memories' Saturday Challenge this week is to use our patterned paper and make a project.  So here is my card which will get added to my OWH box. 

Paper: Cardstock (PTI), Neenah Solar White, We R Memory Keepers (Patterned Paper)
Stamps: Year of Flowers: Lilly of the Valley (PTI)
Ink: Tuxedo Black Ink, Copic Markers
Other: PTI dies, sewing

I chose a more "simple" design to allow the patterned paper room to show off!  I did some stitching on the edges.  I love that this stamp set had a small lilly that could be stamped seperately, it fits perfectly in this 1 3/4" circle, still allowing room for the sentiment which also comes in the set. The centre panel was then adhered using dimensional dots.

I enjoyed making this card, I love it's simplicity and the rich colours.  Thank you for passing through and have a great evening!

What a lovely card Brenda. I love the mix of patterns and rich colours like you say. I also love the stitching- don't suppose you would have any suggestions for a newbie like me on what sewing machine would be good to get? I don't do regular sewing, though I would like to one day, I would just really like to start sewing on my cards as I love love love the look!!

Hi Brenda, well I feel the same as all mentioned above. You really have a a great way of using your patterns that just makes the card want you to touch it and see what is inside.Cindy U.
