Mix It Up Blog Hop

Welcome to the Mix It Up Blog Hop brought to you by the Paper Piecings By Nikki Design Team.  
Two weeks ago, part of our amazing and talented design team inspired you with ways to mix and match Nikki's awesome patterns.  This time, the rest of the team is going to toss it up a bit and show you how you can mix and match patterns - using different patterned and textured paper.  
Now, If you arrived here from Barb's Blog, you are in the right spot. If you just came across my blog and want to hop along, you will want start at the beginning with Patti's Blog.  
So I messed up. I was supposed to use mixing and matching patterns with pattern papers. I spaced out and I used mixing and matching patterns but no pattern paper except for the background. Here is my project:
Papers are from my stash/scraps and Echo Park Dots & Stripes Candy Shoppe
Joyslife.com Lots Of Pun stamp set
White gel pen
VersaFine in Onyx Black
BLOG CANDY - After all what is a good hop without some blog candy? The amazing Nikki is giving a $10 gift certificate to one amazing follower who will be chosen at random and announced June 5th at the next hop. All you have to do to be eligible is:
