This is going to be a challenge for some (all) of us! Mixing and matching patterned paper isn't always easy - and I have to admit failing a time or two. BUT, isn't that the fun of paper piecing and scrapping? Testing our limits and trying new things? So without further rambling, here is my project:
Patterned paper - from my scrapbox
Flower - "Best in the Bunch" Paper Piecings by Nikki
Cute Dog - "You Can Lean on Me" Paper Piecings by Nikki
Sentiment stamp - K Andrews called "Positive Thoughts"
I made this card for my boyfriends birthday tomorrow - won't tell the age, but it is one of those large milestone ones :). I popped up the flower so it looks like the dog popped up just to wish him a happy birthday :). I hope it makes him smile and brightens his day.
Thanks so much for taking a look at my Mix It Up project. Your next stop will be: Liz
