When I put the sketch together, I had an entirely different idea in my mind. I'm not a huge patterned paper user although I own way more than my fair share. It's not that I don't love the paper, but for me, it just adds another element that has to match - in color, style, "weight", etc. - and it all adds stress to my cardmaking! I thought this sketch would be a perfect way to add three small strips of pattern! But check it out - do you see patterned paper in my strips? Nope!! When the chips were down - I stuck with white!
