Each week our team has a card challenge using a pattern from Jeanette Lynton's How To books. Jeanette Lynton is the founder of Close To My Heart and has written a wonderful selection of books complete with patterns, pictures and how to instructions to make beautiful scrapbook pages and cards. The books are no longer available in the catalog but are still available on Amazon and the patterns are still useful. I think they are great for taking out the guesswork out of creating. Sometimes it's just hard to get going!
This week's challenge was Tied Frame from the Originals book. I love how this card turned out. It makes me actually want to sign up for a class and go back to school.
Okay, that may be a bit of a stretch!
