MFW ~ Happy Anniversary!

Hey there! Have you seen the fun challenge at Moxie Fab World that's all about pattern? Mixing and matching them to be exact. I put several into my card, have a look!


Sigh...isn't this floral paper just dreamy. All of the papers are from Websters Pages. The stripe was added to an aqua mist card base then tied with a length of seam binding. Next I added this divine floral panel and topped it with a script pattern. I used a MS vintage lace edge punch on it for added interest. Topping all of this off was a PTI heart border made from a paper with a tiny clock pattern. As you can see, I took the route of soft delicate patterns.

My fluffy seam binding bow was added next. It looked too bare on it's own so I added more pattern with two MFT die cut leaves. One holding a PTI sentiment. Finally a little MS tag was added to the mix.

And there you have it, my card of mixy matchy patterns! 
I hope your week is off to a good start ~Lisa

This is beautiful. ;-) I love the colors and patterns you chose. I can appreciate beautiful papers, I just freeze when it comes time to use them! That could be why I like clean and simple and minimal so much in my own work - one my 'handicaps', I suppose.

But you're a master at it! With a masterpiece here. ;-) Very lovely.
