It's Magic Time

I saw the challenge today at "USE YOUR STUFF"  and it was to use 3 or more patterned papers.   Since that is just what I like (lots of patterns)  I knew I would be making a layout for the challenge today.    I just had to find a sketch I wanted to use also.    So I got to "PAPER ISSUES" and decide to use their 1/9/16 Sketch Saturday sketch.

Along with patterns and layering I also got to do my other favorite scrapbooking trick, matting everything.   It's also a great trick to using lots of patterns and having them all stand out.
For this layout I used all papers from Fancy Pants - Burlaps & Bouquets collection.
