1, 2, 3

It was my choice for our monthly swap parcel theme this month and I chose 1, 2, 3.  One piece of plain, two pieces of patterned and 3 embellishments plus anything else they liked to use.  It has proved to be quite a challenge for them both as they don't tend to use 2 pieces of patterned paper.  Meanwhile I had a ball!!!

I had a lttle bit of trouble with the contents with Pat's parcel until I realised some of the papers/cards were double sided.  Doh, stooopid me!!

The paper on the right was a mix of greens and pink and I twinned that with the green and beige gingham paper.  I hid the join with a scrap of ribbon from ribbon stash.  I then raided my snippets box to find some dark green paper which I cut with a scallop die and also used it behind the greeting.  The topper and the green buttons also came out of Pat's parcel.



I am entering this in Pixie's Snippets Playground
