MIM #221 and PIC #1

I combined two challenges today and I'm not sure I did either one of them justice.  I loved this picture from the brand new Pinterest Inspired Challenge -


and thought I could combine it with the Make it Monday challenge (Masking Sentiments).


Some of you out there in blogland do a fantastic job of making patterned backgrounds.  I've never been happy with mine but I keep trying.  Here I used PTI's Beautiful Blooms, with a little help from Beautiful Brushstrokes, and some HA inks.  I can see a redo coming for this card.  It's funny how the computer screen makes you look at your cards in a whole different way.

  13. Doing a "Bobby Gallery Walk" before heading to work this morning! My apologies for falling behind in commenting, but looking forward to the 'exclusively you' re-views of your amazing creativity. Your background here is marvelous; you've created a patterned paper that I'd be thrilled to use if I had it! Fabulous take on the challenge!
