PTI MIM #274: Pattern Play with Die Cut Silhouettes

Have been trying to cope with this horrible sinus infection rather than playing with paper, stamps and dies. Just couldn't pass up this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday though because it's all about using some of my hoarded patterned paper. I actually used five different designs. And besides that, I have some "new to me" PTI pads due to ship any day now hopefully.

Lexi shared some great examples of mixing patterns on her blog and in the video here. My brain just wasn't working properly so with hopes of making it easier on myself I went with balloons, too. 
Note to self: Never use foam and Sizzix adhesive sheets on the "Celebrate Today" die. It took me forever, was all tangled up, stuck together, foam stretched and so on…but I went with it anyway. 

Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments. 

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: Vintage Cream and Kraft
Ink: None
Stamps: None
Dies: Birthday Style, Make It Market Mini Kit: Color Pop Florals and Noted: A2 Scalloped Verticals
Other: Stampin' Up Retired Patterned Paper, White Foam and Twine
