Nichol Magouirk suggestion was to use vellum over bold patterns. I used vellum over the pattern paper to mute it. It's been awhile since I've used vellum and I'm glad I brought it back out.

Day 3 was using pattern paper with too much patterns. Papers you like, but feel are too busy or big to use comfortably. Kristina Werner's tip of breaking up really large patterns to take center stage and using very simple things otherwise was great. I really like this card!

Oh, this was fun! I used Jennifer's technique of resist on patterned paper. I ironed off the embossing and liked it even better.

I used the large/medium/small formula for combining pattern papers. The large pattern paper was minimumized by use the die cut. The stripe was layered. I tried to use all the ideas. This was fun!
