AMUSEing Pattern Play...


Laurie's fabulous MUSE card
I just couldn't go past a MUSE card with a negative die cut, especially when it's as fabulous as this card by Laurie!  I LOVE the teal, green and brown colour combo of Laurie's card, the gorgeous polka dots and overall design.  After having learned a few tricks in the recent Pattern Play class, I thought I'd up the ante and try for 5 patterns instead of the usual 3, with this combination of American Craft, Bo Bunny, Crate Paper and My Mind's Eye papers, together with the positive die cut Paper Smooches sentiment left over from my last card.  I used a MFT label to create my negative die cut frame, paired with a Spellbinders butterfly, using twine to create the body and antennae.  Perhaps a little OTT with the patterned paper, but a girl's got to experiment every once in a while!
