Sprinkled Petal Power


I hope my American friends enjoyed the long weekend.  We had a quiet weekend here at home and enjoyed our first long hike of the season on the beautiful Ridgeline Trail of the Pocono Educational Education Center.  Our home is surrounded by state forests and parks, PEEC is our favorite as it's not as frequented by tourists as some of the others.  I bet you didn't come here today to hear about that though ;)

Last month I posted a CAS card where I used patterned paper, you can see that here.  Incorporating patterned paper into CAS designs can be tricky.  Above is probably my favorite way to include patterned paper into my designs, lining a card front!  Placing patterned paper on your card base and then layering a white panel over it really gives your card a CAS look!  So don't shy away from patterned paper, challenge yourself to use it in small bits or like I've done here.

I hope you all have a great week!

My color palette was inspired by this week's Fusion Challenge.
