Colourful Background!

This inspiration challenge image was *perfect* for me because I worked on my project just a couple of days after reading this post from the fabulous Michelle Wooderson.

I chose to use the variety of colours and patterns as a jumping off point to create this card that was also inspired by Mish's post.

I used 4 different backgrounds from CHF and stamped a full card front of each, then cut them apart to create this card.

The sentiment is from the Mona Lisa Moments Motivational Centres set. It was stamped in white ink, and embossed with white ep. I added the dots and doodles with markers in the same colours of the backgrounds to tie it in.

I also added the ribbon, and brad to tie the colours of the backgrounds together in one card.

Please visit the rest of the My Time Design Team, and leave them some love.

Also, we are starting something new, and Lauren will be featuring some of the participants on her blog, so please play along!

Nice job. It is fun to combine pattern papers.

Great way to be inspired by this challenge and Mish's post. I wanted to use Mish's pattern ideas as well but ran out of time.

Looks like you and I both had strips and patterns on our minds! I love your take on it with your stamps (especially the great paisley stamp) and lovely sentiment.
