SOS Challenge 51 - Patterned papers

It's time for another challenge over at Shopping Our Stash! This week we ask you to use three or more patterned papers on your card. This is a PERFECT challenge for using up scraps (er, remnants) of all those pretty papers you are hoarding. Yes, I'm talking to YOU! I include myself in this accusation, as I do hoard pretty papers; I'm good at it. Too bad it 's not a marketable skill.

Here's my card:

 I followed this sketch from Skipping Stones Designs:

 All my papers are from the Basic Grey PB&J 6x6 pad. Sentiment is from the SSD Grunge set. Rolled flower was cut with an MFT die. Pearls are all SU. My "scallops" are left-over suede-paper Quatrefoils from making this background on my Silhouette. I have a pile of them on my desk:

Here's that handsome rolled flower, up close and personal:

I filled the flower's center with Glossy Accents to hold that large pearl, and it took about 2 hours to dry. ;/

Now it's YOUR turn. Go into your stash, find some patterned paper (at least three of them), make a card with them, then come pack to Shopping Our Stash and link us up so we can see what you've made!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. i ♥looooooves♥ this one! specially that awesome rolled flower which i'm trying to disenable myself from looking up on 2p's! :) :) :)

  2. VERY pretty! Love that flower and the scallops on this. Fantastic card!

  3. Clever way to make a scalloped border! And your rolled flower is divine!

  4. I love the border using leftovers, what a great idea. I have been fiddling with my Silhouette today, but don't have any leftovers large enough to do anything with yet.

  5. It's too bad hoarding paper isn't a marketable skill, we'd all be masters at it :)
    Love this & the flower is gorgeous! Love the layers.

  6. Hi Leslie! Thought I'd pop over to your blog. Thanks for visiting mine. I'm impressed that you used those leftovers from a Silhouette cut for your scallops. Great idea for a pretty card! (I took the A Cut Above class too, and I need to finish some of those lessons as well. I don't think I'll ever catch up!)


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
