House of Cards August Challenge - Patterned Paper and/or colours

Welcome to the House of Cards August Challenge!
 The current challenge is
Patterned Paper and/or Colours

Inspired by the colour swatch I made this card, choosing patterned papers from my scraps in similar colours:

I was inspired to make the background by a piece of artwork on the wall at the Italian restaurant I went to last night. 

This was a blue piece of card with scraps of paper cut to shape and placed to reveal 3 heart shapes. I placed the background on a white scalloped card base.
I then added the Tim Holtz 'man with umbrella' die cut in purple and the sentiment cut in blue - a Tonic ATC Collection die.

I will link this to Pixie's Snippets Challenge #331 - it was lovely to meet Di at a copics workshop the other day!!

I will also link it to Crafty Hazelnut's August Patterned Paper Challenge

Hope you will have a look at all the brilliant inspiration from my teamies and join in the House of Cards challenge!!

Happy Crafting!
