A card for a couple of challenges

I wanted to share a card that I made with this week's Make It Monday at PTI: mixing patterned papers.

I decided to use some coordinating My Mind's Eye patterned paper from my stash to make it. I also used some inspiration from this card by Michelle Wooderson, for Monday with Melis Challenge #6 on the PTI forum.


I also used PTI cardstock (rustic white), stamps (Botanical Silhouettes), button, twine and dies (tag sale #5, Beautiful Butterflies).

Thanks for looking!
