FCCB 195 - Mix and Match

Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge with FCCB!

Challenge #195 Mix and Match
Use 3 different patterns of paper
This Weeks Sponsor
Jaded Blossom

Winner will receive the Funny Valentine stamp set

For my project, I made a congratulations card for a friend of mine.  We used to work together, until I got a new job last July.  She recently found a new job as well - which she starts today!  A group of us met last week for dinner, and I gave her this card.

I have a light purple card base, then a layer of chevron paper.  I popped up a dark purple layer with polka dot paper on top of that.  Then I popped up the blackout shadow and image, which were cute out of striped paper and the same dark purple paper.  The star is the same light purple as the background.  Lots of dimension to this card as well as all the patterns!

You can't tell in my pictures, but I added some glitter to the star.  I added some crystal gems and some dots with a gel pen to finish off the front of the card.

Inside the card, I used a sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Simple Sayings 3 set - perfect for the occasion!  :-)

Join in the fun this week over at FCCB!  To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.  Thanks for coming by to check out my project!
