little red wagon - 3 or more papers

This one feels like a dare! At little red wagon the challenge this week is to use 3 or more patterned papers on your card. Challenge accepted - and a bit of a break from the more masculine projects I've been working on.

Supplies: papers from Memory Box; vellum flower from Jolee's; sticker sentiment from Mrs. Grossman's; 1.5" circle punch; Corner Chomper

I can't ever bear to toss the ends of papers - I have scads of 1" strips (and 1" squares, and slivers...ahem) and this layout is perfect. I've left a smidge of white showing through between each pattern to break it up a bit, used different widths of strips (I didn't measure, just made sure they were trimmed evenly); and rounded one corner. Voila. AND, I even used the last vellum flower from that package. Now I need to go get another package of them...oh boy. I have a problem.

Love the papers here! Normally that's not an issue as I love to paper it up...The problem is fun crafty time to get in and paper it up. This would have been the perfect challenge, but your sure rocked it! Love that flower!
