More Fun Working with Patterns

Judith over at Jay Gee's Nook, who carries Practicing Creativity Stamps, asked me to be the guest designer over on their new blog. Of course I would, but when I saw this image I just go so excited. I know you'll want to play along with this challenge. Isn't it beautiful?
Love! I decided to mix several blues along with some cream and brown. Can you tell I'm a little in love with our houndstooth stamp and chevron ribbon? Two days in a row.
1. Make card from cardstock.
2. Cut slightly smaller piece of cardstock, stamp lower portion with houndstooth.
3. Punch stripe of cardstock, adhere.
4. Stamp sentiment.
5. Tie bow and adhere to card front.
6. Add buttons.



Stamps: Retro Christmas, Christmas Wonder (Practicing Creativity)
Ink: Soap Powder (Jenni Bowlin); Haystack, Burnt Umber (Palette)
Cardstock: Ivory, Dark Brown (Gina K); Blue Bayou  (Stampin' Up!)
Ribbon: Blue and White Chevron (May Arts)
Punch: Sunburst (Fiskars)


I hope you'll come play along, plus Jay Gee's is giving away The Whole Cycle to the challenge winner!
