Cute Card Thursday - Patterned Paper

The challenge this week at Cute Card Thursday is to use patterned paper on your card. On this card I used one of my favourite techniques which is cutting out patterns from patterned paper and decoupaging them around the image. I used Hannah K & Co papers again and the stamp is Lily picking flowers from Rachelle Anne Miller's Lily and Milo range. I paper pieced Lily's hat, basket and flowers with Paper Mania papers and the rest of the image was coloured in with Frayed Burlap distress Ink. I also added a couple of Prima flowers to cover up the join in the papers.
I made this card in the garden this morning. It's a lovely mild day in Staffordshire today, I hope the weather is nice where you are.
Love Becky xx
