Challenge #2: Patterns Challenge

Our second challenge was to choose one of the patterns included with the Stamp-a-faire kit (or downloaded from Nichole's blog) to create our own card.  I chose Maile's pattern.

The strips reminded me of the Building Blocks stamps, so I chose my sentiment from that set.  I decided to use some of the pre-printed images and paper that come with the Still Life:  Summer mini kit.  (By the way, if Nichole is reading -- I'm going to NEED some more of that paper!)  I also did some ink blending at the top of my card.   I used Distress ink (Wild Honey) and PTI Berry Sorbet.   I added a little Wink of Stella sparkle to the die cuts, but you can't tell that in my fantastic photo.  ;)

On to challenge #3!

You're going to have to teach me how you did that blending at the top ... Gorgeous!
