More patterns than you could shake a stick at!

happy anniversary

It's Sunday and this is the first of my scheduled posts for a week - fingers crossed it's worked! Hopefully I should now be scoffing some gelato by now in Italy. :)

So it's not only Sunday, it's the 18th of the month which means it's time for a new Uniko Studio challenge! The challenge this month is a sketch challenge and Uniko Studio DT teamie Gayatri has whipped up this sketch for us to follow:

I hope you can see that I followed the sketch almost identically. I had an occasion in my head to stamp for (My brother and SIL's anniversary) before I jetted off on holiday so the I made the occassion and the challenge work together. :)

The tiny hearts are stamped from Flower Fusion #3 on to Pure Poppy card and cut out. I added some doodles with my white gel pen to decorate them. The big heart is a die cut spare I had and I decorated it with Background Builders: Chevrons.

I was originally going to go plain and white with this card, but I'm still learning to embrace patterns and colours. Too much pattern on this? It didn't give me a headache to look at it....that's usually a good sign! Ha!

I hope you can join in the fun with us. Here are the challenge deets:
