Pattern Play Day 2

   Day two of the Pattern Play Online Card Class was all about using patterned paper and paper piecing. I really like what Jennifer Rzasa did with her flower and I hadn't used my February Simon Says Stamp Card Kit enough yet so that's what inspired me to make this card.
   The papers I chose followed Kristina's formula again like Day 1's card and I chose three sheets from Prima Marketing's Madeline Collection and Simple Stories' Documented 6x6 pads. I also chose an extra sheet from the Prima pack that was covered with the butterflies I fussy cut out to have some matching embellishments to go with my flowers.
   So, here's how I made the card. First, I stamped the large flower twice and the small flower once from Simon Says Stamp's Like Your Style set from the February card kit in Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I used my exacto knife to cut out the flower pieces then I edged the flower pieces with an E49 Copic Sketch marker. To finish them, I glued the first two layers together and used a pop dot on the center. Next, I stamped and embossed the flourish in the background from Inkadinkado's Sketchy Flourishes stamp set and used Ranger's Embossing Pearl in Silver. (I intended it to be white since the powder is white, but the silver made it subtle, so I didn't chuck it out.) Lastly, I arranged all the pieces on the card and cut out the sentiment strip from the same pack as the background paper and went Tombow Mono Multi-Glue crazy. (It's my favorite part!) I thought it needed something else that I might later regret, so I added the three pearls from The Paper Studio becuase they were still on my table and some Stickles in Diamond to the center of the flowers and two of the smallest butterflies. I actually don't regret it!
   I think my favorite part of this card is the small blue patterned paper strip I cut from the same paper as the flower pieces because it looks like a row of butterflies sitting across the sentiment. Funny, right?
  Hope you like it!
