PTI SAF 2015 - Mix + Match Challenge

I skipped over the Accessories Challenge because those are a little outside my comfort zone.  I mainly dabble in paper crafting and haven't moved in to mixed media type of crafts.  Now, I must say I am starting to dabble with other styles of projects but for this weekend I am not going to stress myself that much.
So back to this challenge:
Betsy Veldman was teaching how to mix different pattern paper.  I think the biggest thing that needs to be learned is how to utilize "white space" which is not necessarily white in color but neutral and plain so your eye has a place to rest from all of the busy other papers/patterns.
This was the one that broke me yesterday, well along with sharing the home office with the hubby and his noisy computer game.  I had been going at it all day and was just wiped so I hung up my scissors and started fresh this morning.  I must say it came together pretty quickly.  I had to use one of the card patterns from challenge two to get me going but it worked.

PTI supplies are:  Stamper Select White Cardstock, Thank You Kindly stamp set for the sentiment, Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest and New Leaf buttons.  Other supplies are: Nestabilities Standard Circle Small - 2nd from largest for polka dot paper, nestabilities Standard Circle Large - 4th larges for the teal paper, Versamark Ink, Wow Bright White embossing powder, MISTI, Tombow Stamp Runner Adhesive, 3M foam tape, WeRMemory Keepers Sew Easy Floss in Goldenrod and Simple Stories "DIY" 6x6 pad for the pattern paper.
Thanks for popping by and I would love to see some comments.  Off now to work on some more projects and to visit and comment on fellow participants works.  Happy Sunday! 


  1. Nice use of resources, going back to the patterns from challenge 2! I always do that when I need a boost of inspiration-motivation too. I love how well all the colors in your card blend!

  2. Congrats on your win! I like that you used a lot of buttons on this card - the layout of them is wonderful!

  3. I really like the use of buttons next to the circles. Great card!! Enjoy your winning goodies!
