as many times as i've used this set over the years, i've never used it to stamp a pattern. i know, right? i used pale tomato, tide pool and soft granite shadow inks on speckled cardstock from avery elle (swwwwwwwooooooooon, y'all). it's such a retro-licious color combo and it goes right along with the phone images in the set. i adhered the stamped panel to the right of the card front and repeatedly stamped my sentiment in the space left on the left. i LOVE how this turned out, even if i don't love talking on the phone.
