Mix and Match!

my name is elly and i love patterns!

i'm usually a behind-the-scenes person, but i'm helping out with a card to bridge July into August! today i've made a little card with a fabulous Lawn Fawn's Party Animal stamp set and some new Pinkfresh Studio goodies.

when i make cards or scrapbook, i always like to combine different patterns together to add visual interest. i used the mood board that Amanda made for inspiration:

i used these fantastic triangular overlays in various patterns from the Happy Things collection of Pinkfresh Studio, and layered them over some paper from the same collection.  then i stamped some party bits out and colored them, and "fussy-cut" them out.  i attached everything with glue dots, a Tiny Attacher by Tim Holtz, and some adhesive to get a happy little card that i think is great fun!

i hope my card inspires you at least a little to try layering some patterns of your own!
