Reverse Confetti August Hop

Hello, hello! It's blog hop day at Reverse Confetti (always on the 8th), so make yourselves comfy and come along for the ride! If you've already started the hop, you should have arrived here from Melissa Phillips's blog, and you'll be heading to Tricia Barber next (full hop order down below). If not, head over to the Reverse Confetti blog to get started. 

The Confetti Crew and 'Fetti Friends will be sharing pattern paper projects today. Reverse Confetti has a wide range of 6x6 paper pads, each featuring two of twelve different patterns (24 sheets total). I'm sure you'll be seeing lots of those patterns today! And if you like what you see, you can do some pattern paper shopping HERE.

I must confess I forgot all about the patterned paper focus for this month's hop, and my planned project had NONE. I was able to put together this last-minute card, though, from leftovers I had on my desk from other projects. I can't wait to share my original hop card some other time --  I quite like it! 

I've been having a ton of fun playing around with the new PATTERN BUILDER stamps and dies and different ink combos. For today's project, I've used PISTACHIO, FLAMINGO, LAGOON, and BUTTERCUP

I stamped two of the medallions and two of the center pieces in coordinating colors and layered them together.

The background is a STITCHED RAYS COVER PANEL diecut with the sides trimmed down slightly and a circle cut out of the center. I placed a yellow pattern from PATTERN PLAY behind the opening for some extra color and visual texture.

The sentiment, from TALL BLOOMS, is stamped in BLUEBERRY ink. I added a sprinkling of clear sequins and called it done!
