365 Cards Day 220 - Missed Opportunity

I chose Day 328 ~ Super Sketchy Sunday on January 22
and Day 343 ~ Mismatched on February 6.
You need to use two different patterned papers that you would not normally use together.

I only started making cards back in February some time,
and set out to make 365 cards commencing March 1 with 365 Cards.
My skills have improved since, especially
after the Cuttlebug and Spellbinders came into my life.
I started with using wrapping paper and cards less than 200g.
Now I use mainly plain cards in various colors with the help of embossing folders,
die cuts, ribbons and twine, stamps (mainly Hero Arts Stamps).
I may not have as many dies, stamps or ribbons as I would love to have,
but I make do with the little I have.

For this card, I combined 2 challenges into one with the 2 different patterned papers
that do not seem to match, yet when the card is done, they come together quite well.
The sentiment is from Love Vellum Quotes by Colorbok.
Like 2 different people falling in LOVE.
They say opposites attract.
Playful meets tweed, fun meets serious,
exciting meets calm.
That's what LOVE is about.
