Two papers, many ways - Practical Scrappers Weekend Challenge

A few of the DT members at Practical Scrappers were recently given four different sets of papers featuring two designs each. For the weekend challenge, we were instructed to use two of the sets to create any project we wanted, with the goal being to see how many different ways the sets of patterened paper could be used. Other than that, there were no guidelines. It was a great challenge and neat to see what everyone came up with using the same two elements.

Here are my two projects:

The papers were double-sided with stripes on one side, solid blue on the reverse and the other had these funky little flowers and solid blue on the other side. I cut out my favorite flowers and used one of the solid sides for a border, then a little marquee that I had floating around. I curled the flower petals and added some adhesive backed pearls for the centers. A stitched ribbon bow and chipboard "love" topped it off.
The second set had lots of mulit-coored circles on one sheet and fun little geometric prints on the other. On the reverse of each sheet was solid blue. I layered three borders - one of each design and one of the solid blue and added it to my card that had some more of the solid blue on the bottom and topped with a pearlescent pink top, then punched out some of the circles from one sheet for accents. I added felt snowflakes and blingy brads and a fancy ribbon to tie it all together.
Be sure to check out Practical Scrappers and check out the great work from the rest of the DT!
