My card for the patterned paper challenge

I made this card for Mel's challenge seen here. This was a tough challenge. I don't mind using patterned papers but I'm not a good mixer of them if you know what I mean. So anyway I still thought this came out kind of cute and I was itching to use this set for the first time.


Stamps
inks
Vellum: unknown (It's a miracle I had this colored vellum. I gave away all of my vellum and as I was putting in the box I decided to keep one of each color *just in case*)
Card base: paper trey ink white cardstock
Patterned Papers
black pen: Copic Multiliner
Ribbon: Imaginisce

You did a great job mixing your papers. I like how you created a scene with your green, flowered and blue papers. And I really like those butterflies stamped on vellum.

You're not good at mixing patterned papers??? This is amazing. It just flows upward from the grass to the flowers to the sky. WOW! Look at those precious butterflies against that blue sky. This is perfect. The ribbon is a nice touch. I have never seen colored vellum before, but you can bet I will be looking for it. I love your card, and wish I had come up something this good! It's beautiful!

Pattern paper is my nightmare. I am so afraid to use it and especially more than one pattern at a time. I love this card and am in awe of your talent. Love you blog, I'm subscribing.
