Joy



We all need a little right!

This card is for Crate Paper's Patterned Paper challenge. I used papers from two of their 6x6 paper pads: Little Bo Peep and Pretty Party.

It's a little time consuming to put together, but not rocket science. Ellie actually helped punch the little circles using a large (just a bit bigger than 3/8") hole punch.

I traced three circles on the woodgrain paper to use as guidelines and then tacked the pieces on with a teeny bit of adhesive. Then I used the sewing machine going around each ring of circles three times.



Lots of repetition in this one, so I'm going to link up with the Moxie Fab World Card Design Handbook Repetition Challenge too.

Hope that your week is off to a great start! I know lots of kids are back in school already. Carina moved up to her next class in preschool today - the Cardinals - the girl is growing up! And Ellie starts kindergarten next week!!! Crazy!
