Saturday Play (with Patterns)

Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop theme is "Playing with Patterns" where the pattern is the focal point. Naturally, this called for the stamp set called Playing With Patterns, right? The 11 piece photopolymer stamp set can be bundled with the 58 piece Playful Alphabet Dies for a 10% savings, too!

I went completely out of my comfort zone on this card. Not only did I not have an image to play with, but I used a color that I don't usually reach for. But you know what? It worked, and I'm actually pleased with the result!

The yellow end of the Rainbow Glimmer Paper was a very close match to the Bumblebee ink in the pattern, so I cut the letters from it. Adding the black shadow letters really made it stand out. I did have to fussy cut the confetti greeting, but that was easy! A few 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots completed the card.

That's my share for today. Now click the Next button to jump to Libby Fens at Libby Stamps, or the Back button to see what Mary Brown at Stamper Camper's Corner made!
