Pile It On! Challenge - Two Patterns or Patterned Papers

We have another fun Pile It On! Challenge starting today...and the theme is:

'Use Two Patterns or Patterned Papers'

Our sponsor this month is Sami Stamps:
Prize - 3 Digi Stamps of the Winner's Choice!

In a bid to try and reduce my paper stash, I picked a couple of co-ordinating snippets of patterned papers to use on my card. The stripey one is from the 'Yours Truly' pad by Pebbles Inc, and the snowflake one is from the 'Bundled Up' pad by Crate Paper. I used them along the edges of my card blank, then added my image and sentiment on a panel over the top popped up on 3D foam pads. The image is 'Ice Dance' dog by Penny Black, and is coloured using watercolour pencils. The sentiment stamp is from a set by Lili of the Valley, and I used one of my Lawn Fawn 'Stitched Hillside' border dies to cut the curved edge.

Here are the challenges I've piled on:
