I used a pattern paper from Basic Grey that was one-half inch smaller than my card base so one-quarter inch of the background would show around. I then used 3/8" strips of pattern paper staggered on top.
The die cut is the new pinked circle die (which I love). I did some gradient stamping with the new Positive Strokes stamp set and used the Scripty sentiment set for my greeting.
Loving those brush strokes!
