Sunday = Design Team Post

Hi there, it's time for another Design Team post and everyone is back today - yay!

We are starting the show with this stunning card from Angeline. Simple perfection!  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's 'Many Thanks' set.


Isn't this card just gorgeous! Ange has used this MME patterned paper to perfection... love the brads, stitching and distressing. 


I am really loving all the breast cancer support stamps that have been released lately - such an important message to share. This sweet image from My Favorite Things is set off beautifully on Iwona's fabulous card.


Joy has made a fabulous tag using some new goodies from Hero Arts. She used the Newspaper Eiffel Tower stamp for the main image. The heart is a Die-namics die, 'Hearts a plenty' and it's finished off with some Mr Huey's mist and twine.


I don't know about you, but patterned paper scares me! I love to look at it, but when it comes to using more that one piece, I have no idea how to mix and match. Today's card was a challenge to myself and although very simple, I did use 3 different papers for this card :) The style is cased from the fabulous Courtney Kelley.

The scalloped border is a Die-namics die, the bird is from Jane's Doodles 'Garden Friends' and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches 'Word Salad'.


LOL, I hope you are still with us after all that. Next week we will have a new challenge for you, so make sure you come back.

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful Sunday :)

Love how you've used the PP... I think paper piecing is the way to go with using it on cards :)

Judith,
Your patterned paper mixture is spot on. They work so well together, you definitely have an eye for balance. Great job from you and your entire DT.
