Snips And Snails



Looky looky looky what we have here!  Patterned paper!  I was inspired by the Wee Memories challenge to use patterned paper. This week's sponsor is Echo Park and not only did I  use patterned paper but I used Echo Park patterned paper!  Oh yeah!  I paired my paper with the sketch at The Paper Players and, although it's not required, I wanted to actually use a Stampin' Up stamp so I have broken these out for the first time and inked one up.  Whoop whoop!  I'm also going to enter this in the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge (can you tell how bad I want to win that gift certificate?).  So now that I've busted out the PP I'm going to have to attempt to get a little more creative with it.  Can't spend the rest of my life sticking rectangular pieces of it to card stock!
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Green, White) Bazzill Basics, (Cajun Craze, Night of Navy) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Little Boy collection) Echo Park
Stamp:  (Sentiment) Stampin' Up
Ink:  (Night of Navy) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Nesties Classic Ovals Large) Spellbinders, (Stars) My Favourite Things

My patterned paper usually sits untouched also...and I don't see anything wrong with just three rectangles of paper!!!?! Actually it's quite perfect for this boys card!

gmta - I just made a baby boy card with those stars too. I think that might be my go-to embellie for boy cards, actually :)
I love the pattern pops against the green - and that plaid is lovely!
