Make It Monday #274 - Pattern Play w/ Die Cut Silhouettes

Hello friends.  Lexi is up this week showing us how to mix patterned paper and die cuts on the Make It Monday challenge.  I just put an order in last weekend for a bunch of PTI's patterned paper, but since they haven't arrived yet, I had to make do with what I had on hand.  So I pulled out my much loved and used Bitty Dot Basics!  I picked out the True Black and Raspberry Fizz papers and the Cover Plate: Butterflies die and came up with this:

  
I know...a little hard on the eyes if you stare at it too long!  ALL those dots...oh my!!  As Lexi suggested, I kept my stamping minimal and just stamped the sentiment from the Bitty Butterflies set, and then added a couple pink enamel dots to ground the sentiment strip.  Here's a closer up view:

 
I know it's a little bold and hard on the eyes, but I still like how it came out and especially LOVE the sentiment!!

You can check out Lexi's video and FABULOUS cards all right HERE and then play along for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate!

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!  :0)

  15. Fabulous use of patterned paper. Love the contrast of those bitty dots in pink and black. Such a high impact card. Where is that sentiment from? It seems familiar, but I can't place the set.
