Pattern Play Day 1

Today is the first day of a new online class called Pattern Play taught by Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner.  As the case has been with their other online classes, there has been much inspiration already!  Combining various patterns is not something which comes easy to me, so I am hoping to get more confident with the tips presented in class.  Below is my attempt, and I must say, that it seemed to take longer trying to decide what papers to put together than just coloring an image and putting a card together. 

I had wanted to use this HA image called Love Birds to make a card for a special couple who just got engaged on the dance floor where we go to dance.  It was a very romantic proposal in front of all of us so this image of love birds seemed perfect.  Even though I love the image, I have never quite known what to do with it.  One of the ladies (Jacqueline, I think?) at the Hero Arts blog inspired me to use only a portion of the stamp, so I had several muses to assist me in putting this card together.

February 27 Challenge at The Outlawz

Oh my goodness, I can't believe how long it has been since I have posted here.  No good excuse, except I just can seem to get around to it!  At least I have still been creating cards, even though I haven't shared them here.  The latest Wednesday challenge at The Outlawz is this sketch:


For my card, I used a cute image by Diane Caruba.  It was a freebie over at Through the Craft Room Door for the latest issue.  You can't beat the magazine for all of the inspiration and then subscribers have these wonderful digital images with each issue. 

Thanks for stopping by.
