I combined FOUR patterned papers!

Putting together four patterned papers may not sound like a big deal to a lot of people.  It may even be something I've done in the past using papers from a paper pack.  But, on this little card, I started from scratch and put these together so, that's an accomplishment for me!               **I still believe the reason it's so difficult for me to combine patterns is my hearing my mother's voice telling me, "Linda Faye, you cannot wear that blouse with that skirt!" And, like most kids, I blame all my problems on my mother! LOL!**

You may have to look closely to see that there actually are four different ones there, but there are!

The pears are from Preserves cartridge.  I HATE cutting and layering all the little pieces so I used a SU marker on the leaves and stems and a gelly roll pen to do the seeds.

The scalloped circles are a 2 3/8" and 2" Stampin Up punches.  I computer generated the sentiment and added some dots with a Signo pen.  There's Chestnut Brown inking on the pears and the card base.

All our Valentine's Day cards were sent to the troops several weeks ago but this one can definitely be used for an anniversary or to just drop a line to someone.

Cute card. You did a good job combining patterned paper. I know what a job it can be. I have lots of trouble with that myself.

What a cute card, Linda. I've pulled out all my greens to get going on the next challenge. Your patterned papers looked terrific together. Mom would approve!!!!
