Mixing & Matching Patterned Papers

Yes, another post today, also for PTI. Danielle Flanders did a great video on creating your own patterned papers. She makes it look very easy but I'm not great at mixing and matching patterned papers though it has been fun making them and putting them together.
Anyway, here's my card for the MIM Challenge.
We'll start with the papers. I pretty much went with the same patterns that Danielle did, just changing my color palette.

The large checked dot is from Ruby Rose, the small dot from Happiness in Bloom. I also used Brushed Blooms, Background Basics Gingham & Note Niblets.
My colors are Ripe Avacado, Simply Chartreuse, Harvest Gold, Orange Zest, Terracotta Tile and Fine Linen.

Here's my cards
Using You've Been Framed Oval.

Using the label from Everyday Treats.

Using Sentiment Splits Horizontal.


Using the other label from Everyday Treats and the Heart Border Die.

I got 5 cards out of those 5 printed papers! Thanks Danielle for a fun challenge and for adding some great colorful cards to my stash!
Be sure to check out everyone else's fabulous creations from this challenge.
Thanks for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
