A Different Style of a Challenge


Thank God that the heat wave in Aussie Land, where i am, is over, now is a lovely low 20's.....enjoying life a bit more....means more creativity possible. Gets very hot in my craft room....gotta get a fan...one day....

Anyways. I found a new challenge blog that incorporates design papers for their monthly challenges. Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge

Here is my card I created with patterned paper. click on pic for details.

Simple design, I used design paper from CREATIVE PL make & create (Playtime scrapbook papers 100 pack) purchased from Aldi last year some time. I wanted the colors to co-ordinate. I glued them on black textured cardstock for a thin border and I though three layers of design was a good number. For the focal image and picture I used stickers which also came from CREATIVE PL make & create (Retro scrapbook accessories 16 pack). Then i thought a couple of nice flowers with jewels would be a nice match to bring in some dimension. That was all done on a base card stock black textured and i added orange texture looking design paper on the inside for some writing.

Cool, i really enjoyed making this card, something different from stamping and inking.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges :-
