MTME Pretty Pattern #66

Good Morning!  Did you all enjoy your 4th of July holiday?  I did - I played in my craft corner most of the day.  The morning started off nice and sunny but there were storms, too.  The kids stayed at my Mom's so they could see the fireworks.

So I am pretty excited to share this card with you today because I got to design the Pretty Pattern we're playing with these next couple of weeks.  It is pretty basic but there is so much room for interpretation.

I kept my card easy, too.  I love having words be the focal point of cards.  It's also a great way to show the pretty digi papers that My Time Made Easy has available.  I haven't seen a digi paper pack in the store that I didn't fall in love with!

This paper was so fun, that I also thought it would be great to make a hand-made button to bring out one of the great flowers in the paper.

Cute right?  I love making these buttons.  Ever since it was a challenge at Just Us Girls, it is one of my go to embellishments.

I was thrilled that the challenge at ColourQ this week are represented in this digi paper, Textile Blooms in the Tapestry Trends pack.  The colors this week are Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral, Brocade Blue and Night of Navy.

Now it's your turn - head on over to the MTME blog to play along!  We'll see you there.
