Potluck Friday 5/22: Textures and Patterns

A little of this a, a little of that, that's what a successful potluck is all about! Are you ready for another Potluck Friday at StampTV?
Today's challenge is to use both texture and pattern on your card. The pattern is pretty self explanatory, any patterned paper you choose that compliments your design! Here I used some of the mottled digi-paper from Gina K's "Jersey Shore" to create water for Rupa's "Guiding Light" seagull.

I added some texture with the Nautical Netting. Your textured element could be something you embossed, a scored pattern your create, a crumpled piece of paper, dry leaves you found outside, anything that adds some nice texture, have fun with it! Uplaod your new creation to STV by May 28th with the keyword STVPF14 for a chance to win a free set, details here!

Are you signed up for the Stampin' Out Alzheimer's site yet? Did you know: I will be hosting a challenge on Monday to go with a big ol' prize Gina K is donating? yep (new stuff!) Hope you'll come play! The fun begins Memorial Day, March 25th! and so do our SNEAK PEEKS!!

Have a great weekend!
