Pattern Play #4

The fourth session of Pattern Play focused on altering patterns to create a new look.  As will all the sessions so far there were lots of tips that I look forward to exploring further!  In this design I employed Shari Carroll's technique for giving patterned paper a new look by creasing, distressing and sanding it in a pattern, in this case creating a haphazard grid.  I've also added some bold flowers from the Secret Garden stamp set.

A strip of what the paper looked like prior to altering features on the inside of the card:
