Buying paper in stack collections can have it's good points and it's bad points. The good point is that a lot of the papers have a common color way, so many of them go together. The bad point is that some of the papers may be difficult to use if they are bold prints or not your style. Some time ago, I bought a stack from DCWV called Amber Autumn. I think it was an after fall sale item and I liked all the reds and oranges in it. I've used some of the papers in previous cards, I'm using some again today and have another card in the works. There are a lot of papers I like in the stack and some not so much, but if I can use those more objectionable ones as bits and pieces, maybe I can use up the stack.
Here is the sketch for the Card Patterns challenge.
Here is my card for the challenge.
I'm also entering this card in the Birthday Sundaes challenge #30 - fall colored birthday card
