Stamping and Mixing Patterns

I had a little bit of extra time this evening, and was very happy that I was able to create another fun card for a particular challenge that; although I love, I have never won, and doubt I ever will.  It's one of my favorite companies, Papertrey Ink.  I've played along there for years, but the odds of winning are......well, let's just say not in my favor.  LOL
I created this card using some October Afternoon patterned papers and an October Afternoon stamp.  I also used SEVERAL fun Papertrey Ink products including their Limeade Ice Wool Felt and Hawaiian Shores Wool Felt, their Heart Border Die, Cream Cotton Baker's Twine and a sentiment from their Heart 2 Heart #4 Stamp Set.
 
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
 
Nichole Heady/Papertrey Ink Blog - Make It Monday #206 - Stamping and Mixing Patterns - I love this idea, and I often combine mixed background patterns.  I used no less than five (5) Papertrey Ink products which are all listed and linked above.  Have I mentioned that I absolutely LOVE Papertrey Ink?

Crafty Calendar Challenge Blog - March Challenge - Add Some Metal - I absolutely LOVE adding metal embellishments.  They make such a statement.  For this card, I attached a tiny Tim Holtz rusty paper clip to my sentiment.

  1. LOVE all your bright colors and patterns in this beautiful card...it's definitely a stunner! And don't feel bad about not winning...I've played for years and have never won a Make it Monday either! I learn something new just about every Monday though, and it keeps my card stash filled, so it's all good! :0)

  6. Oh Karen, I just love this bright and cheerful card! This challenge was definitely right up your alley! You're so good at mixing and matching patterned papers. You're one of my favorite designers when it comes to that.
    I've been playing along with MIM for years and have never won either but the ideas and inspiration I get from others has been so good for me. And I've met some wonderful paper-crafting friends through these and many other challenges (like yours). I hope you win soon!
