A Technique Challenge - kinda

Today's Technique Challenge was to combine different patterns of dp - polka dots and stripes or stripes and big flowers. I do this on occasion anyway, so it wasn't that big of a deal.

The colors come from the dp - which is the True Blue collection of Sweetwater designs. I had to shuffle through my various blues to figure out what color was the closest: Buckaroo Blue (one of the retired In Colors from last year.)
Stamps: Gina K/Melanie Muenchinger - Just so Hippy. Paper: Barely Banana, Buckaroo Blue, Bravo Burgundy, white. Ink: Buckaroo Blue. Accessories: ticket corner punch, brads, dimensionals, ribbon.

An update on my whining from yesterday. We're no longer in the Winter Storm Watch, we have a freezing rain advisory until 4pm today. Not as bad, but I'd still prefer 40+ temps.
