card patterns sketch #26

Hi all!! I've been trying to upload this card for a couple of days but we have been having thunderstorms here off and on. I love thunderstorms!! They are awesome and scary at the same time!! This card is all papertrey ink except for the flowers. I absolutely love how this card turned out. I haven't used aqua mist and spring moss together for quite awhile and when I made this card the other day I was in the mood for a softer feel and these colors fit the bill. I was inspired by the papertrey ink's senior design teams challenge on August first to use four or more patterns on a card. I was wanting to stamp that night but didn't really have a card in mind so I just stamped a bunch of different patterns on a bunch of strips of paper. It was really therapeutic!! You should try it!! No particular card in mind but I still stamped a bunch for later use... and then I saw the cardpatterns sketch for the week and thought PERFECT!! I am patiently waiting for the mailman to bring me my new pti order... it has the every day button bits in it and I can't hardly wait to ink it up!!!

thanks for looking and have a great day!!

  1. Hi Lisa! You are so cute! I love this card! It's all sweet and whispery and delightful! I'm jealous because I haven't gotten to THIS sketch yet and it looks like fun! You did a great job: I'm getting really hungry for some PTI goodies! I think you rocked BOTH challenges! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I dooooo love the soft colors Lisa. This is beautiful! Everything is well put together from colors to pattern and details. Excellent spin on the sketch!

  3. Lisa this is stunning! I love the soft colors, those blues are perfect. I love thunderstorms, too. We had a rough one come through Monday night- woke us up at midnight with ground lightening right out our window. Yikes!!
