Mixy-Matchy...I like it!

 I'm a total Paper Crafts Magazine lover.  Which means I'm also an avid reader of the publication.  Where am I going with this?  Will, to the May/June issue on page 65.  Flipped the page and my mind flipped too.  Cath Edvalson had an awesome feature with an AMAZING Betsy Veldman card (I wonder if she even makes un-amazing cards...doubt it!).  It was all Mixy-Matchy and awesome!
Had to give it a try so here is my version of making Mixy-Matchy work.

Here is why I think this card works
Kept a soft neutral color as the main color so it wouldn't be so busy.
Tried to stick to the primary colors when collecting scraps.
Added a bold sentiment so it didn't get loss on the card.

Got a mixed up idea?  Start in your scrap pile...I did!
It's no Betsy Veldman card, but I think it works.
