Pattern Power!

Hi there! I'm back tonight with a card for the There She Goes challenge. It's my turn to host this week, and I'm challenging you to use pattern power! Use both Stripes AND dots on your card today. 

I love mixing and matching patterned papers. Today I've used what I think might be my fave collection this year, Persimmon by Basic Grey.

I coloured the cute owl from You're a Hoot in neutral tones. Instead of using my machine, I used the fun In Stitches set to stamp all my stitching on this card. I'm also playing along with the Paper Players Wildlife challenge.

Here's the inside...

I love that little silhouette image! 

To be eligible for the giveaway, create a NEW card or project using the Pattern Power challenge, and then go to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (November 11th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the lookout to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :) 

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG232 so we can check out your beautiful work!
