H2H - Mix & Match, This & That

The challenge this week at Heart 2 Heart is Mix & Match, This & That. It can be to mix and match papers from different paper collections or to use a combination that is rather opposite like stripes and polka dots or something else that is a matter of mixing and matching... there are a LOT of possibilities here. 

I chose to use stripes and polka dots - I wanted to delve into the Adventure Fundamentals papers once again as I love those colours. I initially was thinking about using the bold diagonal striped paper but it just didn't work with what I had in mind. I have a feeling I am going to be left with a lot of that pattern when the end of that paper pack comes around... I tend to have a difficult time with the larger patterns in general, especially since I tend to be more of a card maker than a scrapbooker. I think those larger patterns are better suited to scrapbook pages than to smaller situations like cards... 

Nonetheless, I used the stripes with the arrows on them and the large polka dots. I also used the tiny little polka dots as a background paper. There are also stripes on the ribbon. 

Join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us your interpretation of Mix & Match, This & That. Since this challenge goes live on February 27th, leaving just 2 days in February, it will be counted as the first challenge in March. So, you have the entire month of March to enter this or any of the March challenges.
