Lots of Patterned Paper

As I said on my previous post for this Embellish Magazine challenge, I love these colors together.  For this entry I used more of the same My Mind's Eye stripe, but added in some patterned papers from Memory Box "Valise" and Stella & Rose "Hattie" papers, along with some ribbon and some die cuts:


supplies: camel, medium, and dark brown card stock, Design papers from My Mind's Eye "Four Mile Stripe" and Stella & Rose "Hattie" paper pad and Memory Box "Valise",  teal dotted ribbon from Kath, Making Memories velvet brads from Mary Anne, Martha Stewart doily edge punch, Papertrey Ink flower dies, Sizzix Branch with Leaves die, Nesites label four die, Papertrey Ink Friendship Jar (sentiment), Versafine Deep Lagoon ink


I'll also be entering this into the Verve July Diva challenge: Sentimental About Paper and the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: Anything Goes.

Hi Lin! I'm loving this colour combo too, and am looking forward to rummaging through my paper stash to find something to work with. I won't be able to do it justice as you have in your two cards though, both are gorgeous. I'm loving the flowers on this one and the papers you used are meant to be together :)
