Using pattern paper.........

I found this pattern paper last weekend during my girl's weekend.........Fell in love with it.  It's so mixy matchy and I love it!  I do though have problems with using pattern paper........that's just it......I need to actually USE it!  So that's where this card came in and I thought it was a bit "Mish" inspired as well!  I also used these particular papers for a challenge my friend Jen has going on over at the Papertrey Paper Dolls.  A new challenge went up and ANYONE is welcome to play along!  You can check out her challenge HERE.




When I saw this week's Tuesday Trigger over at the Moxie Fab World, I thought I should link this up!  The colors are so inspiring and I love the shabby'ness of this photo!!

Oh, Amy this card is just so elegant and beautiful and you must be lucky enough to have a wonderful shop close by that carries such fabulous lines of paper! What a fun take on the trigger and the colors tie in so well! I love the off center button! I love to do things like that too! :-) Love this girl!
