Topic: Pretty Paper
I'd been having a lot of trouble finding materials to match the blue in the floral piece in the center of this card. I started looking in the patterned paper file instead of the solids and found success - with multiple pieces! Ire scalloped edge down the left side is actually printed on the houndstooth paper and I just mounted the stripe to leave the scallops revealed. Brown dots and pink dots pull more colors from te feature piece. I discarded all the other scraps from the 'Random' paper pad which left me with this arrangement.
The sentiment piece is trimmed outfrom a stamped piece and I backed it with a piece of the card base and rounded the corners.
