Sometimes....

I can be into patterned paper and sometimes I am just "eh" about it.  I like that more and more companies are coming out with the 6x6 pads...and that those pads are more readily available.  I like the contrast between the printed patterned paper and a colored image.  So, at the present, I am kinda into patterned paper again....at least for yesterday's card,  today's card, the one I have in my head and haven't made yet and maybe also the two wedding cards I need for this weekend....So yaa- hey...here is my card.  I used pp to offset  a Northwoods Stamp.  Northwoods because I felt the NEED to color and those stamps always give me plenty to color.  Then I mounted it up on a piece of sticky back canvas and slapped it all (slapped with alot of thought mind you) on some patterned paper and voila! Done!  By the way, I will point out here that each and every time I have typed in the word "patterned" I have spelled it wrong and had to go back and correct.  Jeepers!  Here is my card:


                                                                 
I included another shot to show dimension of the pop up panel....but it didn't really work.  HA!  Take care and thank you for visiting.  I hope you enjoy your day.  It is coldish, and rainy-in-scattered-mists kind of a day here.  I am waiting for packages to arrive.  I love that "waiting for packages" feeling. ;-D

Be well,
Sheila

oooh...packages :)...I hope it was something FUN! New stamps perhaps??
I just love how you put things together, Sheila! I envy the way you get all these layers and different elements to come together into such a masterpiece :) And of course, you know I love all the bling you use :) LOL

Your coloring only gets better, Sheila! Love the sparkle and I hear you about patterned paper. Sometimes I feel like I am cheating by using it when everyone else seems to be making such lovely backgrounds. But, the look just works best sometimes. Glad you are feeling spunky again (I can tell). Thanks!

Great card Sheila. I too am waiting for a parcel... bet it arrives on Saturday 'cause I'm away for the weekend. Hope there are lots of goodies in your parcels.
