Destined for Greatness

I actually got to do a Super Sketch Sunday on a Sunday! I'll tell ya, Amy is REALLY exercising my patterned paper skills! It's funny, but when I first started this blog, I rarely used patterned papers. Through doing challenges on Splitcoast and challenges from fellow bloggers, I began to use patterned papers more and more. Now I rarely make a card without patterned paper! Having said that, I usually only use one, maybe two patterned papers on a card. Amy's challenge this week was to use FOUR patterned papers. Yes, FOUR! She said the blocking didn't have to be exactly the same since she just used scraps and cut them to fit. I used scraps too and cut them to fit and it actually worked to be the same blocking pattern. . . .I just flipped the sketch. I love using up scraps. . .I have tons of them! The patterned paper is all from the Urban Window Collection by We R Memory Keepers. The star piercings were made using the Punches Plus Classy Brass Template from Stampin' Up! The sentiment is from the Great Expectations set by Verve Visual. There's a Star-Studded Sale going on at Verve Visual from now until May 15! If you love stars, this sale is for you! Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Great Expectations (Verve Visual); Paper- Urban Window Collection (We R Memory Keepers), Whisper White, Really Rust, Chocolate Chip (SU); Ink- Chocolate Chip (SU); Accessories- Punches Plus Brass Template, Chocolate Chip marker, paper piercer, large Star punch (SU); hemp, Stardust Stickles.

I am in love with this!! It is sort of Americana in theme...I've been searching for some good paper to use but everything I find is always "meh"...but I'll look for some of those stripes and plaids.

Great card! Gorgeous!
