Sketch #62- Bonus #1

Oh, I've been having so much fun with this DCWV Crafty stack.  Why did I let it sit untouched for so long?  I've learned so much about combining patterns by using layers from Operation Write Home's great resources on cardmaking.  I know I wouldn't have had the courage to put 6 patterned papers on one card before, but that's what I did here.  The only true solid is the navy.  

This card is based on Bonus Sketch #2 from OWH, listed along with #62 on their blog.  Check it out here and also check out the whole sketch archive.

I'm also posting this card for the Midweek Throwdown- flowers.   Not much of a challenge- I think half of my patterned papers have flowers on them!  Thanks for taking it easy on us this week. ;-)

Thanks for visiting.

  3. You did a great job mixing all those colors and patterns. Layering them with a darker color really works.
