MTME Pretty Patterns #79

Good Morning!  I am so happy that it's Thursday already.  I've posted the newest Pretty Pattern on the My Time Made Easy blog and I think it's a fun one.  I hope you do, too.

Here's the card I created with it...

Now, when I started this card, I hadn't originally been thinking a distressed card.  But there were a few mistakes made, which I turned into happy mistakes.  And then I picked up the coolest paper at Michaels that was on sale and I had a coupon, so I think I paid $2 for it!  Gotta love that.

I am also submitting this into the There She Goes challenge for this week which is sponging with die cuts.

I hope you have a great Thursday and we'll see you over at MTME.

I adore these colors and the way you've used the colors! The lighter aqua is the perfect accent for the browns! LOVE this!!! :)
