FCCB Challenge 195

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge with FCCB!

Challenge #95 Mix and Match
Use 3 different patterns of paper
This Weeks Sponsor
Jaded Blossom

Winner will receive the Funny Valentine stamp set

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.  To join this weeks challenge visit Fantabulous Cricut Challenge blog here. 

Here are my tips for using three or more patterned papers in a project:
1)  Use papers from the same collection.  For this page I used Bo-Bunny's Teen Chic paper line.
2)  If you use paper from more than one manufacturer, use a single patterned paper for the color scheme and chose papers with a matching color scheme.
3)  Use simple patterns such as stripes, dots and checks, or an all over pattern such as the green pattern in frame on this page. 
4)  Use smaller scale patterns and add larger scales coordinating patterns as accents.  See how I fussy cut the flowers from the Bo-Bunny patterned paper and made my own embellishments? 
5)  Add a neutral.  Bo-Bunny already had black (a neutral) in the stripe, and I added some more to help pull the patterned papers together.
