Just A Note... - FMS 15 & Embellishment Mixed Pattern Challenges

Hello again everyone! Everyone is busy as beavers, I'm sure, so I thank you for looking in today.

In checking out the challenges I looked at the unusual colour combination and mixed pattern idea for the Embellishment Mixed Colours Patterns Trend challenge. I was intrigued, but originally thought I couldn't make this work and not even knowing if I had these colours in a variety of patterns. Then I came across Cindy Hall's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.

Suddenly I decided to look to see if I had what was needed to put something together for these two Challenges. And I'd better hurry too since FMS #15 is coming due very quickly! And guess what? I did have some papers in those colours and in a few different patterns! Though it did take a little time to go through my papers. I think I have to come up with a better way of organizing them.

So here is my card. Once I had everything it was easily created. And surprisingly, I like the earthy and unusual colour palate.


So I won't take up more of your time, but thank you again for stopping by today. And Merry Christmas too!
