Very Busy Flowabella

At the beginning of the week, I tried Jen's Sketch For You To Try. She has a great blog called I {heart} 2 Stamp that I often browse through for ideas and inspiration. A while back I saw a challenge on Splitcoaststampers that called for you to use two or more pieces of designer paper/patterned paper (TLC157). I do add two kinds of DP to my cards sometimes, but with this card it is very deliberate and very contrasting patterns (They do come from the same line - Infuse by Basic Grey).

You may also have noticed that I paper pieced the Bella's dress with the striped Invest DP. To do this, I stamped the Bella on the patterned paper, cut it out and glued it on. This technique works best with line image stamps.

By the way, I love questions and am happy to answer any that you may have. Sabine asked what kind of stickles I used on this post HERE. They are called Cinnamon Stickles by Ranger. I found them at my local scrapbook store (Here in Winnipeg, I found them at Dalcrafts). They are $2.40 for a 0.5 oz. bottle.
