Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper February 2016 challenge

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper February 2016 Challenge

A challenge that is always about using
Patterned Papers

As you will have read, sadly three of our team have had to step down so I'm looking for three crafters to join us on the DT from March until the end of June, with the possibility of staying on for a further six months after that.  If you are interested, please add DT after your name. Please only apply if you are willing to produce one design for each month. You will also be required to leave comments on a designated number (please bear in mind that there usually are a lot of entries). Please note that this call will only be open until 14 February to enable me to get in touch with new DT members and give time for them to make their designs.

I don't know about you, but I have enough patterned papers
to keep me going for a very long time -
so let's make sure we use plenty of them

You may enter any creation on which patterned paper/card has been used - you are no longer required to completely cover the creation with patterned paper, as long as you use some on your creation, obviously the more, the better.

You may enter as many times as you wish during the month and link with as many other challenges as allow you to do so.

As I have an abundance of patterned paper - 12 x 12, 8 x 8, 6 x 6, A4 - I'm giving a prize each month to the randomly chosen winner. I'm willing to post anywhere in the world, so that means that anyone can enter regardless of where you live.

This is the prize for this month's challenge (I bought two lots of the papers, so I have used some for my card, which you can see among the DT.):

6 x 6 Autumn Archives paperstack
30 sheets
Crafter's Companion Compendium interactive PC CD-rom
The versatile CD resources with 2500 printable papers!

January challenge.
It's worth checking because it might be you!

I hope you will join in again for this new challenge and that the news will spread even further so that others come and join us too.

February 2016 challenge

If your cards happen to fit the theme for the week on my CHNC challenge blog, please feel free to add there as well and also for my CHNC challenge extra blog, which is always 'anything goes as long as it's Christmas'.

Remember that for this Patterned Paper challenge
designs can be for any occasion

Before I show you the lovely designs of the team, I am sad to say that Lynne has had to step down from the DT because of health reasons - we wish her well and hope that one day she will be able to return to the team.

Here are the Design Team's inspirations:
