Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #274 Pattern Play w. Die Cut Silhouettes

Hello!

These cards were created for the MIM #274 Pattern Play with Die Cut Silhouettes.

Click here for Lexi's blog to learn more.

I decided to make several cards using different pads of patterned paper from Papertrey.

This was a great challenge, but challenging!!! haha. It took me a while to comb through my paper stacks and figure out how to balance the patterned balloons with the patterned background. It is easy to make it too busy.

On my cards I die cut 3 balloons from PTI Birthday Style Stamp set and dies.


Here is my second card. I die cut "Blessed" and pieced in purple card stock. 


All the paper is from PTI.
Blessed die is retired from MFT or PTI (sorry I can't recall!).
Birthday sentiment from The Stamps of Life.

Thank you for stopping by!
