Pile It On # 21: Mix Your Scales

Hello bloggy friends! It's time for another fun Pile it On challenge! This week we are challenging you to mix your scales. This week our sponsor is Jelly Park and one lucky winner will get 3 digis! Awesome!! So if you are not familiar with what 'mix your scales' means, you basically are mixing a large scale pattern (like a large floral print) with a small scale pattern (like polka dots). Here is my card:
My card was inspired by this week's sketch challenge at The City Crafter.  For my large scale I used the large floral pattern on the circle, and my small scale are the polka dot background paper and washi tape.I used an adorable Jelly Park image and added some color with copics, and then enhanced with glitter. I used Spellbinders dies to cut the rectangle image mats and the sentiment pennant. Here is a closer look at the image:
For the sentiment I added some flowers, and used some washi tape to make another pleated flower for the center and then topped with a button. I stamped my sentiment on a pennant that I cut from a Spellbinders die. All of the paper I used is from American Crafts.
I hope you have enjoyed my project today and thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop by and see all the other inspiring projects our talented design team has made up for you!
