Cutie Pie

I thought I'd try out a card using only patterned paper and no stamping today and I love how this one turned out! Sometimes I surprise myself, ha! This card is based on today's sketch challenge and this sketch is going to be one of my favorites - simple and fun. I grabbed my packet of Cutie Pie double sided paper and immediately wanted to use the big flower prints, but when I played with the sketch, the flowers were too big. After trying out other paper in the pack, I really kept coming back to the flowers and so to solve my "too big" problem, I just let the big flower escape out of the box. I love how much it makes the card pop! I needed a fun little accent panel to go underneath the flower, so I pulled out my Certainly Celery Prints paper (I know, I use it all the time, but it's the best!) and thought the polka-dots were fun and perfect and matched the dots in the lower strip. I added Barely Banana brads to give the naked corner a little something and spaced them evenly by using my paper piercing template.

Thanks for stopping by!
