Double D Pick a Pattern

Time for a new challenge at  Double D Challenge Blog This one is called pick a pattern and here is the fabulous mood board. 


You may wonder why my colors don't match the mood board.  The answer is simple. I got my challenges mixed up.  In a future challenge, I noticed pink and lime green being used together and thought "That's a pretty combination." A few days later when I decided to work on this challenge I rembered the pink and green.  So went through my papers and found these colors and was thrilled ,,, until I went to post this on the blog  and noticed the colors on the board .... no pink, no green.   Oh well, at least I have patterns. Just imagine I used blue or red or black gingham. This would make a pretty Christmas card if I used red gingham and a red poinsettia. 

One of the things I live about DD Challenges is that I get to use some of my older and sometimes retired dies.  I love this chevron die and I think it looks great in pink and green.  The side panel is from Frantic Stamper and the Flower is Elizabeth Craft Shasta Daisy.  I don't know what dies I used under the flower because on days when I am not feeling creative I put several dies on half sheet of  green paper and run them through the die cutting machine. I might do this 10-12 times.  I save them with my flower stash so I can make my floral arrangements quickly. 

If you play along with this challenge, one lucky person will win this paper pad from Echo Park.  Don't you love how Dar and Diane make the prize suitable for the challenge. Such clever ladies. 

Now go see what my team mates provided for your inspiration.  They never disappoint. Double D Challenge Blog
