Paper Dolls Challenge #52

Hi all!  I've been on a bit of a blogging and card making break.  It wasn't planned, but I know you all understand how those things have to take a backseat to everyday life sometimes.

It's my turn to host the next Paper Dolls challenge.  Since I've been so busy I've made this one really simple.  

Use Your Patterned Paper
***  Create a card or project that uses at least three different patterns of paper.  ***

Most of us have an enormous stash of patterned paper that we could never, ever use up.  So pull out a few sheets and put them to use.

I chose to make a set of note cards with two slightly different looks that are blank inside.  These will make a great gift set sometime. Here's the first one:

And here is the second look:

I hope you'll join us for the challenge.  Just hop on over to the Paper Dolls blog to link up your card or project.

 All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Paper:   Guidelines pp, Royal Velvet & Vintage Cream
Other:  Butterfly die, Hawaiian Shores felt, Lavender Moon ribbon, apron lace punch (fiskars), leaf die (sizzix), small butterfly punch (MS), sewing machine

Hope the girls transition back to school went well Sara. We're in homework mode now...

Love these cards (you know I'm always looking for great ideas for card sets). They are fabulous!


Hi Sara,
What beautiful note cards, and a great way to use up some of that paper stash, which most crafters have.(I know I do)! Love the felt butterflies!

Hugs, Sylvia xx

Geri said... the colors and that you kept the focal point simpler (yet very striking) against those pretty patterns! Really pretty!

What a great card, and such a good idea for a challenge. I have more patterned paper then I will ever use. I'm not crafting much these days, due to life and my daughter's upcoming Bat Mitzvah, but this challenge will definitely be on my radar.
